Photo a Day: Day Two Hundred & One
Wednesday 20th August
I’m quite a fan of cooking so today I cooked tea for the family. I decided to make my own version of chicken chow mein. It was rather tasty!! I then proceeded to pretend I’m good with a pair of chopsticks, don’t be fooled by the photo, I still need to master this particular style of utensils, but it makes for good fun whilst eating!!

Whilst out walking again, I noticed these peculiar seed pods, which made me wonder what kind of plants or flowers they are. (I’m not a big gardener so I still don’t know) It just seemed kind of strange to me how they were all in a row together on one singular branch. I thought they would make for an unusual photo, even though it was hard to get them in focus because of the wind blowing.

Saturday 16th August
Periodically I put together a selection of different photographs, either from a series I’m working on or just some that I think look interesting from different outings, and sell them at local fairs and craft fairs. I think its a good way for promoting myself and gives people a nice image to take away, (for a small cost). So this Saturday I set up a stall at my local churches Summer Fair with a few photographic notecards. I’m happy to report it went fairly well.

Being somewhat of a culture vulture I couldn’t resist popping off to this exhibition, especially when I found out it featured work from the tutors at my college. It was really interesting to see a showcase of work and the range of talent that the tutors have and I was pretty impressed when I left. Definitely worth a visit.

Today I went on a trip to the leather museum as a way of doing some research for an upcoming project at college. They always have a huge tub full of offcuts and I thought that this would make a great photo of the day. I really liked how the different layers of leather make a really cool background, especially with all the different colours. I think it would work well as a background to something.

Another floral one I’m afraid. But these little beauties made me think about how plants and animals would easily take over the Earth if humans ceased to exist. Whilst they look extremely pretty on the wall it wouldn’t take long before they cover the whole wall.

Sunday 17th August
As some of my college friends will tell you, I have a slight obsession with doorways, so much so that I did a whole project on them, but thats a whole different post. Anyway when I came across this old weathered, beaten looking door, I couldn’t resist taking a photo of it. I just think it would make for a really interesting back drop for a photoshoot. I’m thinking a sort of urban fashion vibe. (Maybe something will develop from this) but even so I think it makes for a great photo of the day.

Its been such a long and busy week this week, that it was especially nice to spend my evening with some lovely company, refreshing drinks and even a little firework display. It felt like the height of sophistication drinking pimms out of plastic cups, but by this point, I really didn’t mind. A highly enjoyable evening out!

Wednesday 13th August
Today whilst out walking (gosh I do a lot of it) I found myself looking up at the trees that I passed rather than at them. It was reminiscent of being in New York when one tends to walk around with a crick in their neck from looking up at the skyscrapers. However I felt this would give me a different angle and depth to my photograph of this tree and its seed pods. I actually like it a lot.

I spent a lot of my afternoon with this gorgeous little puppy, as I was working on a shoot here for a college project. This was about the only time she was still for the entire time I was there so it was the only picture of her that wasn’t blurred.
