Today was my birthday and I wanted to do something creative. So I went out to the coolest antique shop around Jeff’s Warehouse and spent some time admiring the cool objects and trying to capture them with my camera.
Places like this are fabulous for creative types—the objects all have long stories that need discovering (or rewriting). The history within the building is incredible and exciting, and it was a wonderful opportunity to look at objects from different angles.
I’ve spent the evening playing with the hundred pictures I took, and I’ll be putting them here over the next few weeks. Check out Jeff’s Warehouse online or in town.
I feel I need to apologize for the overabundance of flower photographs.
I just can’t help it.
First off, I am obsessed with colour. It just makes me feel brighter, both figuratively and literally.
Secondly, I have access to them. I have been trying to plan some trips to see different things that I hope to photograph. But it’s been so hot that I’ve not been able to handle a long drive and then a wander around in the heat. But I can step out onto my front porch (which, by the way, is looking so lovely I could punch someone).
Lastly, I think almost everyone can take a beautiful photograph of a flower—the beauty is already there and I think one would have to work quite hard to ruin it.
So I’m sorry if it’s all gone a bit too flower for you. Let me warn you: there is undoubtedly more to come.
