Pavement Pattern

I've been walking past this pattern on the pavement of Whitworth St West every day for the last few weeks, and I finally decided to take a picture of it yesterday. Sadly, I only had my mobile on me, so it's a not very good camera phone picture...

Cow Rustling

Imagine my shock at seeing a cow on top of a van parked in central Manchester...

Wise words for these times of economic crisis...

It's grim up north...

Who'd be a pigeon?

 Another opportunistic camera phone shot, so apologies for the low quality and dodgy focus...

36exp Contact Sheet

This is the very final part of the 36exp work; the contact print. This is the piece that the whole exhibition was originally based around, with every artist showing their contact print and only a couple of individual enlarged prints.

Quite against the usual character of weather in the north-west, there's been some beautiful autumn sunshine in Manchester recently. I took these photographs around the canals at the back of my flat in Castlefield.

36exp Part 4

This is the fourth and final part of my 36exp posts, showing the remaining three triptychs on the film. There's still time to come and see the exhibition, which is open until Friday at the EASA gallery on Hulme St.

Also, I'm looking for a photographic club to join in Manchester so if anyone knows of a good club they could recommend, please let me know!

Finally, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who modelled for me for this film. I hope you'll agree that the photographs came out well, far better than I could have hoped for.

36exp Part 3

It seems that I've inadvertently started a blogging race with my father, but I feel i ought to keep up appearances, so here is part 3 of my 36exp photographs. For those of you in and around Manchester, there's still time to visit the exhibition itself and see all the other artists' work at the EASA gallery on Hulme St.

I've excluded a couple of the photographs from these sets because they didn't come out so well and would have been a pain to layout in blogger (having a few difficulties still with getting things laid out how I want them!) Part 4 coming soom, which has the final three sets on it.
