I’m afraid it’s another slightly cheating post this week. For the second week running I have struggled to complete a post, and for the same reason – being just a few days off of shooting a lot of images that all need editing. This time it’s been a couple of days since I attended London Fashion Weekend and have barely even started editing the 1,800 images I took in one short afternoon (and, of course, the 1,000 or so I took during two weeks in Europe are also on my list). For once, I have no shortage of images to edit – and that’s part of the problem, and I didn’t want two ‘preview’ posts, where I post the handful of images I’ve processed from a larger set, two weeks running.
So for this week, here are some decent shots I found on my hard drive whilst looking around for inspiration. Ironically, three of them were taken on the same days as my trips to London Fashion Weekend. This first one is the sunset that accompanied me on my journey home at the weekend.
Meanwhile, this is what greeted me when I made it home.
This next shot was also taken after a trip to London Fashion Weekend – right after my first visit in early 2013, after which I went out and photographed a women’s rugby match at Twickenham (quite a juxtaposition). Most of the pictures weren’t really any good, so I’ve never released them, but this image caught my eye when looking back over the images recently.
Completely changing tack for the one image that isn’t in some way related to a fashion weekend, and other image pulled from a set I shot but never liked enough to post.
That’s my old model Thunderbird 2 and Thunderbird 4, something proudly on display at home that I’ve owned for some twenty-odd years.
The last post of this little set is a bit more directly Fashion-Weekendy, as it is an image from my first trip to the show that didn’t make the original cut.
And that’s it for this little run through my random, homeless images. I’ll definitely be working to bring you a proper post next week.
