Yikes, we’re really hurtling towards the end of the year now! How scary! Here’s a quick round-up of what I got up to in November.
The Chelmsford Ideas Festival carried on into the beginning of November, and I had a great time meeting more fantastic people and organisations who were involved. I also popped back to photograph an event for the Big Read, where the Imagine In Print creations were installed in Chelmsford’s High Chelmer shopping centre. To see more of my photos from the week, you can read my blog post, or visit their website at http://www.changingchelmsford.org/if2013/, and for more information about the Ideas Hub visit http://ideashubchelmsford.org/
I took on a new client in November – Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA). CAA is a registered charity set up to promote and champion British craft, and the première exhibition and retail venue for learning about, appreciating and purchasing contemporary craft.
I was asked to come in to photograph some of their beautiful objects for future exhibitions, and to take some installation shots of their new Christmas Exhibition: Whiteout, which is a seasonal selling exhibition celebrating all things white.
I was back at the Geffrye again in November, this time to photograph a small evening event where guests viewed historic recipe books, listened to music by Tramontana and listened to a talk by food historian Kate Colquehoun. I really enjoyed photographing such a lovely event.
As you will have seen in my previous blog post, I had a lovely afternoon getting to know Ian and Sarah before I photograph their wedding day in December. I think this was my favourite shot:
I had quite a good month for recipes this month, but I think this award should go to the salmon soup that I made after having a delicious soup made for me by a friend. It’s just salmon, onion, soya beans, crème fraiche and stock. It has to be said, in the bowl it looked pretty unattractive, but it tasted very nice!
November sees one of the social highlights of the year round my way – Tim and Tom’s Firework Extravaganza. Each year the display gets more and more impressive. I made this bonfire cake to take round:
Tim and I also went to the Vans Warped Tour at Alexandra Palace. I absolutely love going to gigs and this was a great day filled with bands at a pretty great venue. We had a good dance to Enter Shikari:
All-in-all a pretty good month. How about you, what were your November Highlights?
