guardians of the origami…

(final exhibition of the work the kids made during my 2 month stint in Andrha – we only displayed the origami as i projected a film of all the work in the main hall – these are some of my students looking after their work while watching the film)

…and here is a short film (6 mins) summing up what we did, i showed it at the end of my time there to the whole school which was chaotic but a lot of fun:

neglecting my duties…

…someone wiser than me referred to blogging as being like tending a garden, you need to water it and tend to it regularly or ultimately it withers and dies…which is absolutely true and i must admit i have definitely neglected the watering part of late…so i shall try to make amends. There have been foraging trips and Spanish culinary adventures, all coming soon, in the mean time here is another photo from India. I would love to say it was a requested portrait but it was me who did the asking, they looked so marvellous in the early morning light:

same place, new request…

Same place, same request, new subjects (see last post)…They called over to me, laughing while they brushed their teeth asking for their picture to be taken…this is a good place to come of a morning!

requested portraits and mugging for the camera…

Requested portraits are a category of photographs i take whereby the subject asks for the picture to be taken and they pose themselves, i just shoot, here are a few recent ones:
