It’s a rainy Friday morning here in London and all I can think about is being wrapped up warm and cosy in bed while watching the rain pour down outside.. Alas, it’s not yet time to pack in the day job. *sigh*
So since there’s no point in complaining about it, its time to get out into the elements while adequately protected in my Hunters wellies and Burberry trench to go explore the world of London’s winter fashion.
Yes winter is truly here now. I know this because my fingers turn a lovely shade of blue outside, then pink inside. Joy… But it’s another excuse to drag those heavy winter coats out of the cupboard and dress to impress.
Since I’m always hunting for a challenge and opportunity to take an original photo with some depth.. One late night after pulling myself out of the gym, in the corner of my eye I saw Greenwich University flooded in lights. So I quickly rushed home, donned my inconspicuous black outfit and ventured out into the cold. It didn’t phase me why the grounds were lit up like a Football stadium, all I wanted was original shots that I love and I’m pretty sure I got them.
What I’ve learnt from my photography jaunts – every photo needs purpose, be unique, have a focal point, challenges your skills, be something you love and want to hang in your home.
If anyone has any photography challenges, I’m up for it!
