Polaroid pogo-go!

I’ve always been a fan of Polaroid’s and instant photography. As a keen photographer and artist, exploring how you observe the world individually through photography is something very challenging and exciting. How we vary as people through our differing backgrounds and settings. Capturing frames that inspire, challenge and change our perception of our beautiful ever-changing world. When I heard of the new Polaroid pogo it’s something I thought could be interesting to document our transforming urban landscape. So I decided everyday for the next year I would take a picture, documenting life through my eyes, and see what kind of person I am. What makes me different from other people? What makes something visually attractive to me and unfamiliar and not so pleasing to someone else? maybe the beauty is in variety, like creation around us. But nonetheless I’ve been documenting since November and these are my images so far. I will be updating my images monthly and display my favourite week from each month, let me know what you think, or what tones, pictures, settings inspire you?

Monday blues…seek some Autumnal therapy

Its October we have all passed September’s re-settling in period, whether its back to work, university, or college, back to the grindstone. Summer is well and truly gone, well that’s if you had a summer. But hey look on the bright side, the enchanting colours of the autumnal season are something to make anyone with Monday blues smile. Intense shades of reds, oranges, pinks, yellows and green. The roads are multicolored if it were. You just have to walk down the road to see the most amazing leaves scattered down the walkway. I’ve probably developed an unhealthy habit this season of picking up beautiful crimson leafs & other intriguing ones that make me feel inspired. Colours you couldn’t think a tree could generate during it shedding (thirst period) and colours you would only associate with summer. Parks, communal gardens and anywhere with a high density of plantation are a treasure trove of hue’s and tones. So next time you feel cold and tired, take a detour through the park you might just see the most beautiful array of colours that could brighten up your day.
