Every 6 months or so Sam and I take a trip to London to see some photography exhibitions, art and design, and generally wander the city. It’s a day trip city break. We did this back in July last year. Cheap tickets. Good exhibitions. It’s a simple thing and I’m never bored.
FYI there’s an exhibition on video games coming up at the V&A later this year. I have high hopes for it as it features Journey, The Last of Us and No Man’s Sky (which I really need to return to). We’ll be going down for that and another wander.
It’s been 2 months since I moved my studio from a space in Liverpool to a space in my house and because of that I rarely get the ferry any more. I think I need to do Ferry Friday or something. Have one day a week when I work from a cafe in Liverpool because I do miss the walk to the ferry and the ride over. It’s not such an issue this time of year because with the clocks changing we lose the amazing sunrise / sunsets and the ferry gets busier. Those winter months though. They’re the absolute best.
I’ve got a boat load of photos from our travels that I just haven’t properly sorted out yet. Bulgaria was 2013 and I have no idea why I didn’t get around to sorting them. I’ll get to them, soon hopefully. It is interesting looking back though as I see the photos differently with hindsight.
I really enjoyed Bulgaria. We would do an early walk around the island and then spend the day on the beach swimming and sun bathing. It was a good combination of photography and relaxing.
So here I am in April sat in a coffee shop (Love Locks, Liverpool) drinking coffee and I’m trying to think of what to write for today’s blog post when I happen to find an album in Lightroom Mobile called “Best of 2017”. I must have made this at the end of last year, or even the start of this year and obviously I never published it. So. Easy content day.
I know it’s lazy but I’m trying to plan the first episode of my Leica Journal/Diary/vlog/thing and it’s a lovely day so I want to plan that and shoot it today. So enjoy what I once considered the best images I produced in 2017.
