As Seasons Change
I’ve had a busy week. I’ve been working on some promo shots for York based band Scream Arena, registering as self employed, off out to gigs, photographing a black tie event, going to the zoo….! I’m sure there is something I have missed. Anyway, I need to go out in an hour as I am photographing a gig and I could really do with doing pilates and cooking myself some tea!

I’m going to start trying to make this a blog, rather than just another place where you can find my shots. To this end I am going to experiment with posting less frequently, but putting more written content in with more pictures per post.
That’s the idea anyway.
Today it’s been very cold. Apparently (so says the weather man) it’s been the average temperature for the end of October! My knees are a bit bad, due to the cold no doubt.

Today it was supposed to chuck it down with rain and be really windy all day. In actual fact it was quite all right in the morning/early afternoon; it was overcast and somewhat windy, but that’s OK by me.
I’ve had this shot in mind for a while now, but the sunflowers were something which came to mind when I realised that the conditions today were ideal for shooting it. I really, really love sunflowers – I have three tattooed on my leg quite large after all!
Laying like that proved to be more difficult that I had initially imagined, and I felt myself thinking “this would be so much easier if you had a model!” but there we go. I really like this shot.
To me it symbolises a hope through adveristy; even though you are broken you can focus on the positives, get back on your feet and fix yourself. Regardless of the obstacles if you persevere you will get there.
In the afternoon I went to my grandma and grandad’s; they have the best garden for autumn – loads of fruit : D
