the sunniest november

reflection

Originally I planned to do the 26 things photographic scavenger hunt running just one film through Pingo-Cam, but half-way through the film I had a sudden moment of orientation anxiety (accurately, as it turned out -- I didn't use any of the verticals) and realised it would have to be two.

sharp

As if they'd known I'd been banned from Snappy Snaps (for developing Pingo Cam's uneven shots, anyway) Boots sent me a voucher giving me 500 points back for every film I develop with them. So my resolution to shoot less, draw more, didn't last too well.

cold

It was agreeable, chosing the shots after, writing the descriptions; as well as a hunt it's become a diary for November; my haunts and habits, the routes I walk, the things I saw and did and thought were worth the shot.

Carnivorous plants, a festive lobster, a giant telephone, Eid lights, debris and crash damage, and always the sun, blazing down on the marketplace, shining through banana leaves, casting shodows and of course staring down from the wall of the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern.

i love them fotos
ages ago i did my chemistry degree at lincoln college (one of the little ones in turl street) and them fotos make me go all dreamyhappymelancholythoughtful. i love them. i can't even remember the name of the comic shops up the cowley road but i do remember acquiring lots and lots of flaming carrot and lonewolfandcub there instead of chemistry books. bad david. but lovely comics.
