Im having one of those weeks where I just can be bothered todo anything, i literally have to force myself to get up in the mornings. Im not sure if its because this year has been so busy that now its all coming to an end my body just wants to lay down and sleep or if its because this is just what I enjoy doing? part of the reason for starting this three photos a day thing was because when I have days like this it makes me get up and do something productive, you always feel better after you get productive.
After a really good meeting yesterday where I got some cool stuff done and we spoke about the next six months, where hopefully I get to create some amazing content and then wrap it all up in an exhibition! don’t worry when I know more about this I will let you know, but for now I still don’t know myself.
Anyway after the meeting I came back literally watched two movies and had a nap, but this blog meant I had to get up and go photograph something which lead to me heading down to Bond street and photograph the christmas lights, which in turn lead to me walking all round central London trying to capture “the magic of christmas”. normally this time of year I try and avoid bond street / oxford circus as its just pure mayhem, but this year I headed there after rush hour when its a bit more chilled out and too be honest Im kind of happy I did. the lights seemed to be way better than in pervious years and its really got me into the christmas sprite, its almost as the different streets are competing for the best christmas lights, oxford and bond street definitely have the wow factor, but my favourite has to be Carnaby street, they just have a bit more originality.
Maybe what ill do on the blog is a top three christmas light post from all the different lights around London. its not like I don’t have the time now.
right I think we can all agree that tuesdays, should be a day of no work. its the one day each week, where you forget about the weekend you just had and still to far off to think about the weekend you have coming up. they’re just a day where you work, go home and get ready for Wednesday. I always try and mix a Tuesday up, to give it something a bit different, but yesterday I had nothing. I just worked, had a mini shoot half way though the day, which was a bit fun. So on my walk home, I decided to take some photos of cool shadows, that mix it up abit. see what weird shapes I could find, that normally you would just walk past, but with the light being so SICK in the summer, I wanted to use that to my advantage.
Heres a few snaps.
P.s my camera is still broken, I stuck the lens in a bucket of water to take some underwater pictures of crabs and now its got water damage, im hopefully buying a new camera on Saturday,
I have to admit, I was wrong really wrong, the other day i thought manchester was sunny and in full summer mood. Today it has rained non stop, but not like normal rain, its literally like someone has turned the shower on a just left a cold shower running.
At the moment, I cant show anything that I’m working on, so my life outside work is the tube journey, during the week. hopefully once I’m off the crutches I can start cycling again and get some of that decent London rush hour fresh air, which beats London rush hour tube air. Anyway, when you actually look at the Tube station and notice that alot of these places actually have some weird London tube atmosphere, its pretty fun taking pictures, so get used to it.
Last night I had a brain wave and ended up on the South Bank taking photos and actually looking at the sites and basically pretending to be one of those people that londoners hate, a tourist. I think I was probably a very good tourist and fitted right in.
When you live in london its easy to only ever end up on the south bank for the pubs, which are pretty good and you can do a never ended pub crawl if you’ve got it in you.
