Within These Walls

Another project idea, although my effort today was interrupted I'll share with you what I managed to get. The set up was to make an image in every room of the house, using just my compact camera the Pentax MX-1 and no tripod. I had started under way with this when daily reality came along and I had to stop, but the principle is there and it's another way to find something to shoot that's a bit of a challenge. After all, what could there possibly be of interest in our own homes? Well plenty I hope, but we just need to seek it out.

Let's start in the computer room, what did I find here, just a Bose radio/CD and a foam fascimile of a Nikon compact camera. It's intended to be a stress reducer, but I use it to make audiences take in a sharp breath by throwing the camera across the room. Of course, when it bounces that does give it away, but it has raised a titter or two.

In the porch there are some bookshelves, so I found some books, some very old paperbacks this time.

In the lounge, Finn obligingly provided a subject - himself.

In the freezer, perhaps some oddments?

And in the stock cupboard a challenge to the best images of tins of Campbell's soup.

The kitchen found an eggsellent subject....

And I had to give up at the conservatory. Here Sue, hot on the heels of refurbishing the computer room, has decided to renovate an entire house. This is what Lockdown does to us. Fortunately, this time the renovations will cause less disruption. As you can see, it's early days.

I think the point is that there's always something to photograph, even when Locked down as firmly as Manchester currently is.
