But no sushi…

Stanton House is my favourite Japanese restaurant and does the best sushi I have found yet…

So if you are in Swindon, I would definitely recommend the visit. Stanton House also has these beautiful massive grounds – Stanton Park – which is where I went for a walk around with my boyfriends wonderful parents and jack (the dog) on Sunday. It was a lovely day, and a lovely walk. But I’m still sad about missing the sushi.. But here’s hoping I can go next week!

Seems I’ve had a rapid change of interest.

Usually I am more interested in photographing people than animals or anything else…

But this City Farm project has gotten me more excited about my photographs of chicken more than my photographs of the people. I’m not sure where that change of interest came from, and might not last long after this project is over, or I might stick with photographing animals for a while. Not sure if my images are any good or not.. But I do enjoy farms.. I get all excited, like a small child.

6 weeks and counting

My final year of university is rapidly coming to a close, and I’m not sure how I feel about it..

I’ve never particularly got on with education, and I definitely don’t see myself doing any further education..Just nooo thank you. But at the same time, I really don’t want to finish and then get a job in the real world. I enjoy my mid afternoon naps too much. (:
Again, after saying that I had a great week at the John Lewis Photography Studio for a weeks work experience and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. The 9-5 thing with an hour travelling time both ways was a struggle to get used too, but happy to say I didn’t mind it where as I thought I would never be able to have that kind of job. Oddly I’m stressing more about the 3 exhibitions that I have coming up than the actual university work. (one solo)
Anyway, I have still been happily shooting away at Stepney City Farm. At the farmers market this Saturday I picked up a loaf of Haloumi Bread from @ebbyskitchen and I have to say its amazing, and I have already eaten all of it…chubby but happy tummy.

Sadly again, I didn’t manage to photograph the new baby goats who have just been born. I will catch them one day!

The Pig Idea

I really love pigs…

That being said, it wasn’t the easiest thing ever to photograph these two. I don’t like photographing outdoors when its really sunny, and it was when I went to photograph these pigs.. makes too many harsh shadows and highlights. Next time it’ll hopefully be a little more overcast. I’m not a great fan of the shots I got from today, but I do like some of them which are the few below.

When a portrait turns out well

It really gets me excited about photography again…

I mean, lately I haven’t had such the enthusiastic approach to photography that I used to. Well I love looking at work, but for my own work I have very little motivation.
But as said in a previous post, I have been visiting a farm in East London. Great little place and I have been enjoying my time there so far. I photographed the farmers market yesterday and I really love some of the results.
Also I’m enjoying photographing recovering ex battery chickens. Talking to one of the workers I found out they have only been at the farm a few weeks but are already showing great signs of healing. It’s wonderful to see.
