My fascination with urban photography generally, and London in particular, seems to be growing. Perhaps the fact that I no longer commute to London every day for work has something to do with it. It has become more enjoyable, I love looking around, something that got lost in the daily drudgery in years gone by.
A reasonably pleasing image here and there could not hide the fact that I have been incredibly frustrated those last few months with my photography. So what better way to get out of the rut than to try something completely new? Inspiration came from Steve Gosling, whose workshops I used to attend regularly, many years ago. Olympus lent the camera and Steve set the task - shooting urban scenes in London. I expected nothing, and perhaps that was the key. It allowed me to look around with fresh eyes, explore and play. 3 hours - and that was all that was needed to invigorate my mind, to re-ignite the passion.
