I have inherited a rather nice little digital camera which fits in my pocket and talks to my phone in recent months. I’ve been taking it out alongside a 35mm camera to take little shots here and there because I know it will be a while inbetween trips to the lab. Sadly, I am so unaccustomed to shooting on a digital camera that I don’t actually do anything with the photographs I take as quickly as I take them, but I’ll get better as I go, I’m sure.
Here are a few tidbits from the last few months I’ve seen along the way, inbetween things that I will share with more detail later.
(above) Old Street Station has the most delightfully muted purple tiles, if you take the right stairwell.
I assume I was drunk when I took this and thought it was hilarious/outrageous enough to photograph.
The Abstract Expressionism exhibition at the RA was a delight. I lost my entire being in a Motherwell for about 20 solid minutes. Afterwards I spent £80 on paints, brushes and paper. Result.
Afterwards I went into Fortnum & Mason and laughed at the price people will pay for chocolate.
Your annual reminder that I would like these candlestick holders, which currently reside in the Wellcome Collection.
Some feelings I will be trying to harness as we move forward into the new year.
Our Boxing Day walk this year was short and ended in our local pub, The Prince. This time of year is rather exhausting for those of us who work in the meat trade (ICYMI I work in the (good) meat trade when I’m not taking photographs) and I fell asleep with a glass of wine after a short walk around Alexandra Palace. It was a joy.
Wishing you all the best for 2017, and beyond!
