So, lately I’ve been shooting black and white film – mainly because I can develop It myself at home. It’s fun developing film. Also, I’ve finally found a darkroom for hire in Liverpool, so I’m looking forward to getting in there and printing these properly.
These are a few from my home town, Wallasey and some from Liverpool.
I like this one. I walk past this car all the time on my way to my brother’s house and wonder why you’d need to put a padlock on the gate when the car doesn’t even have wheels. Who’s stealing that?!
St Georges Gardens in Liverpool are great. They used to just be a place for us to drink when we were kids, but now I appreciate the beauty and tranquility of the place. It’s important to have green in the middle of a lot of grey.
I’ve never trusted Henry. Always feel like his eyes are following me. This was funny, though. It’s not every day you see a Henry just chilling outside.
I walk by here a lot. I want this exact photo but with a person walking past the middle of the entrance. Note to self: Try that next time. It’s hard to take time to photograph sometimes. A lot of the photos I take are on the fly and in the moment and I think maybe I should linger about a bit more.
Sometimes when you process your own film, you fuck it up. It’s all fun and games, eh?
This place does a ridiculous flat white.
Although I made some decent photographs, I had somewhat of an epiphany whilst taking and developing them.
“I need to have bigger balls whilst out with my camera!”
Too often lately I’ve thought to myself, “That would’ve been a fantastic photo” and it needs to change. I’m losing boss photos because I’m too afraid to approach a stranger and strike up a conversation for fear of them thinking I’m strange. I love photos of people. It’s all I look at for inspiration, yet when it comes to it I shit out and take one of a building.
From now on, I don’t want to take a photo without the subject being a person. Time to take the photos that i want to.
I do like these ones, though.
See you next time,
