The NFT is one of my favorite places to hang out in the evening, there is always something going on. I was at the LLGFF hanging out in the downstairs bar. I had just been in to see a fantastic work in progress documentary on Alice Walker called Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth it is a deeply inspiring and heart warming film and I do hope that the will get the support it needs to get into mainstream distribution. You can find out more about the film here if you get a chance to see it I hope you do.
Anyway towards the end of the film the fire alarm when off and we all ended up out on the walk, the busker was out playing his saxophone and a couple of people took up as an impromptu audience, once again I’m glad I had a camera on my phone!
Another train station shot taken from a different train this time. I love to travel I really enjoy the journey from one place to another and all the moments in between. I get to catch bits of other people’s journeys and lives. It was a bit of a gloomy day this journey and I was drawn to take this shot the grey of the sky with the camera and the station sign. I find it thrilling to take photographs of the cameras that watch us in our day-to-day meanderings. In a way it feels quite connecting to photograph them almost like I’m saying hello to them.
I’ve been to Stratford Station a number of times now. I find it has a certain prison camp sort of feel to it I feel the urge to shoot it almost every time I pass through on the train. I would love to spend more time with my camera there but on the few occasions I have been in there with my Cannon I have been told by the guards that I am not allowed to take photos on the station platform. So while on the train (not on the platform) I could not help but get my phone out and take a shot through the window.
Delicious Dim Sum for a joint birthday in China Town.
Dim Sum for my family is the equivalent of a Sunday pub lunch. We would all get dressed in our best and head out to Dad’s favorite China Town Restaurant. We would order enough dishes to full the table and eat till we burst. All my life Dim Sum has always been the way to celebrate special occasions.
