Since purchasing a second-hand macro lens I’ve become obsessed with the world around me (well, our flat and garden) as seen in macroscopic detail.
One of my Christmas presents last year was a dusk photography workshop on the Thames with professional photographer Andy Carver that I had the pleasure of attending last night.
I'd been looking forward to taking my camera to last Sunday's Harringay Food Festival since first spotting the banner advertising the event on the railings outside The Salisbury pub on Green Lanes earlier this year.
Since dreaming up my Photo Documentary project back in December last year I've been hot-footing it around Haringey, camera in hand, snapping a selection of it's most famous buildings and landmarks. Imagine how excited I was this morning when I walked the short distance to our local photo developer and collected my prints.
As I don't have any projects on at the moment I've been scratching my head trying to think of something to work on and seeing as Kate has a lovely SLR still camera that sits in the bottom of our wardrobe unused and unloved I thought I'd attempt a Haringey themed photo documentary. It's mostly an excuse to improve my photography skills and an opportunity to dust off and use what looks like quite a nice camera.
