I need to admit it's been a trying week. My laptop broke, which forced me to buy a new one and now I need to subsist off Ramen for the next month. But I finally did that photography course and I now I know what all the numbers mean on my fancy schmancy camera! Hooray! I'm quite chuffed to say that all the photos in this post were taken by me.
1) Statue, Totem, Rubber Duckies at the British Museum
I forgot how much I loved The British Museum until our photography teacher took us there to unleash our newfound photography skills. The American Indian exhibition is phenomenal - that image of the wooden face is a close-up shot of an amazing turn-of-the-century Totem Pole.
2) Sad Little Christmas Trees and Baubles
I've been compulsively photographing all the discarded Christmas trees that have been stripped of their finery and left on the curb to wilt. There's something both sad and beautiful to see the remnants of holiday cheer simply withering on the streets. I snapped this once cheery little tree on a park bench in Amsterdam. The little bauble I came across on the footpath just outside my house in London. I love that despite its cheerless surroundings it's still so bright and shiny. There were a few men remodelling the house across the road and they were endlessly amused by my antics attempting to photograph a little bauble.
3) More Hackney Street Art
Hackney is where we keep our products and so on the way there I'm often surrounding by some really interesting street art. Loving this Cucumbear - he seems like a friendly fellow (being half-vegetable and all).
