As February is a short month, I think I am entitled to a short post!
It's been a project-propelled month which has seen me cycling to Chigwell to cover another stage in the Vineyard process. I'd quite fancied the idea of working on a vineyard, but there is some serious labour involved, and you have to be dedicated to nurture your vines on a cold grey day in Essex!
I got a record five additions to the Downtime project under my belt. All can be seen on the projects page, but here are a couple of favourites:
We had the private view for London Independent photographer's (crouch end group) this week; great turn-out and a wide variety of exemplary work. Scroll down for opening times etc.
I got asked to photograph another Somalian wedding party, which in itself is fine, but the organisation of some of these weddings is mind-boggling: I was initially asked if I was available around 1pm on the day of the party, but had assumed it was a no-go, until at 5.50pm I got the call to confirm. I got home just in time to change, get my gear together and arrive at the party for a 7 pm start! Seems you can pick up a photographer anytime, any place, any where!
Some other highlights were my mudlarking expedition which I have written about already, and a long-overdue visit to My old Dutch on Shrove Tuesday. I would advise going there with an empty stomach!
Marching on to, well, March... have a good one!
