Another peek into this weeks life. David Vs Goliath (well David shooting with a customers camera whilst his looks on in dismay).
iPhone – Shot on Hipstamatic and then fettled with Flare on Mac.
You may have guessed I’ve found a little time to quickly upload the photographs I’ve shot so far this week inbetween work. It’s been rather busy with little gaps of time in which the hunt for food and coffee takes place all the while I’m hunting for 365 subjects.
Stormy day makes for stormy photographs. Foreboding clouds gather over the city as I turn my gaze upwards into the falling rain. A second later I’m running for cover, a smile upon my face knowing my shot for today is made.
So another little sight from my recent travels whilst working. This just reminded me of a certain little something which has brought a smile to many a face. A certain couple of friends should get where I’m coming from with this one, this one’s for you guys. You have no idea how much I want to find one I can call “I’m in space!” to complete the set.
iPhone – Camera+
So that’s me up to date apart from todays shot, I might actually get out with a “real” camera today although it’s pouring with rain at the moment so we’ll have to see about that. Next week I’m back into the thick of it with five loooong days of repetitive shooting, the kind that crushes the creative within. However it pays the bills and gives me the freedom to be able to work on some of my personal projects, so it isn’t all bad. Hopefully I’ll be able to find something interesting to photograph for this project somewhere in the week. If not, I fear it’ll be more iphone shots of signs.
The eleventh from this series of planned rider portraits for Fixed Gear York.
Up this week Is Mr Michael Caddy, or Caddy for those in the know. This guy has been on the FGY radar for a while but I’ve only just managed to ride with him for the first time this last couple of weeks. Why the dirty hands, well from only three rides with this guy he’s had some oily mitts from tyre related maintainance twice, I figured it was a fitting tribute.
Top bloke and we’re all going to be a little worse off when he heads overseas later in the summer to teach English for a while.
Trapped in the belly of the city, people scurry around trying to feel busy, trying to win the race which in the end is only with themselves.
Pretty dark couple of photographs from me it would seem for the last two days. Not sure what that’s all about, maybe it’s time to break out and photograph some rainbows and puppy dogs to lighten the mood. Although it’s Wednesday tomorrow so that should mean a new rider portrait if everything works out.
One from todays ride with friends new and old involving two frame builders (Mr Chris Bishop from Baltimore and Mr Ricky Feather from closer to home).
We figured a classic British styled track frame built by an American deserved a fittingly English backdrop.
Check out these two guys and the beautiful steel creations that spring from their minds & hands;
