Below is one image that I actually took before the red project I have been doing this month. But, it sort of fits as a bridge for this month’s one project and what I intend to do next month.
In April, I am going to do a project called ‘presence’. The aim is for it to be about the presence of people, but without people actually being in the photos. Therefore, it’s going to be shots of objects and places. I am going to shoot on a Canon AE-1 with a 28mm lens on Fuji Acros 100. I am really enjoying shooting colour at the moment, but it’s good to shoot some black and white for a change and mix things up.
I am struggling to get the epub format up on WordPress. I have a couple of e-books to post up (one of which will be the red project of this month). However, once I have worked it out I will post up a link. I might set up a new page titled ‘eBooks’ to make it clearer.
More London Place
Recently, I have been getting into these more vernacular sort of shots. Normally, I like to see people in them (other shots on the negative of this scene did have people in it).
One image from a trip to London back in late January this year.
Yes, there haven’t been many posts recently – blame
me film for that! I have been exclusively shooting film (Ilford HP5+ and Fuji Acros 100) for the last week. It’s been great, but not good for the blog. Good news is that a lot of film is going in to be processed tomorrow. Bad news is that it will be about a week before I get it back.
I am (slowly) putting together an ibook of the night photography that I have done in Salisbury over the last couple of years. I will post a link to it up when it is done. I am just debating in my tiny mind about adding a multi-media time lapse or video element to it. If people have any thoughts, feel free to comment.
In the meantime, here is an image that I took after I left the Anti-Trump protest in Downing Street that evening.
I have done a spontaneous quick trip to London this evening. There were some people in the city centre holding a vigil for the refugee children that are not currently being accepted into our country at the present time.
I have been to the Anti-Trump protest this evening. As I walked over Westminster bridge it was pretty impressive to see how many people had come. I was still someway off Downing Street at this point, but a lot of people had amassed and were continuing to arrive. After another 10 minutes I started to push through the crowd to get closer to number 10 and the public speakers. I got to the cenotaph, but that was as far as I could get. The crowd was so large that I couldn’t really get closer. I could hear people talking to the crowd, but I couldn’t make out what they were saying.
A very productive day in London, especially with regards to the protest. I will try and get some shots posted up tonight of the event, once I get off the train!
