As a photographer the familiar can offer a way of exploring somewhere in depth.
I have a strong sense of time and place. Sometimes it is looking through old photographs and connecting with the moment they were taken. On other occassions it is when I am photographing a place where something happened. I am currently working on a series of photo essays that will be appear on the blog over the next few months. Through my photographs and research they will each look at a particular place and a particular time.
Still life photography gives you a chance to pause and think about the objects depicted. A few reflections on the former life of some old bike parts.
