Edinburgh to London contact sheets

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Having made the move from Edinburgh to London, I’m now heading into my second week of employment as a photographer! I’m working full-time producing architectural and interior photography, and the best bit of that I get a company scooter to get around London in! Actually, the work is the best part – I love having a job that means I’m not stuck in an office all day long. Such a good decision, and I’m so glad I got it!
Understandably I’ve been a little run off my feet getting used to everything and so haven’t had a chance to get going on the heavy editing work required for my recent Edinburgh to London project. So… in order to stave off the guilt for a while, I’ve scanned in the contact sheets which I just picked up from the developers. I was using an old medium format Hasselblad camera for the trip, and though most of the photos I took were on my D200, the quality and ‘feel’ created by the Hasselblad is too pleasing to resist. Unfortunately, development costs are somewhat prohibitive.

Below are some thumbnails, but I’ve uploaded them at full resolution so if you click on them you should be taken to a full-size version hosted on flickr.

Enjoy for now, and eventually I’ll get round to finishing the real editing work.

I’m feeling a bit obsessed with colour lately, and these Lee filtersJeder Blackjack Spieler online roulette der Reihe nach einmal gegen die Bank (Runde). are a total blast to play with!

Click on the photos for MASSIVE versions. I thought that they would make rather good desktop images, so once you’ve clicked on them, press ‘all sizes’, and you’ll find v v large copies up there for you to download.

Enjoy your weekend!

Old sites, new sights

On my last day in Edinburgh I decided to photograph the Greyfriar’s graveyard which my bedroom window has overlooked all these years. I have popped in before, but never with a camera handy.
Though of course the gravestones made good subjects, it was the greenness (for want of a better word) of the grass and new leaves, that I was soaking up.

Spring is brilliant isn’t it.

Putney Bridge

Since Putney is now my new home, here are a few photos that I took on a walk down by the Thames a few weeks ago. Putney’s on the flightline, so the noise of places flying over is a very familiar and homely sound.

SO, I have upped and moved to London, and I only just noticed, but the exact day that I arrived in London was precisely one year on from the date of the first post I ever made on this here blog! I was planning on doing some big posting about how I had or hadn’t achieved my aims, what I had and hadn’t learnt, the ideas I’m still working on and the projects that I’ve completed and am or am not proud of. The truth is, I’ve been so busy with the move that I have literally hundreds of photos I’ve not yet posted up. So instead of writing, I’m just going to be posting lots of photos up over the next week as I get round to editing them – so check back soon for lots of yummy tidbits.

Here’s to the next year!
