Hello everyone out there in Internet Land, as you may have noticed I’ve been neglecting this website/blog a little bit lately. The reason’s for that are numerous, a house move taking up a ton of time and blood pressure, a holiday taking up more of that time but lowering that blood pressure, the house move meaning internet access was sketchy. And then there was also this little project I’ve been working on, which brings me to the reason for this post. I made a new zine.
Hey everybody, as you may or may not be aware I published a zine at the beginning of the year that showed off various photos I’d taken while I travelled around Italy last November (If you don’t know then check out this here). I have now produced a second zine that is of images taken a lot closer to home, I give you “Coast”.
We’re coming up to the end of the 52 week project, thank God for that I hear you say, although in the last couple of weeks I’ve realised that technically I could squeeze a 53rd week into this before the year is over. This week the theme is “Art”, another nonsense theme I would never choose myself but there we go. It does mean I get to use this image below, a few months ago my Grandmother found an old painting her Father had done decades ago, it’s nothing special, was really dirty and had just been done on a piece of thick cardboard he’d had to hand one day, but I like it. She asked me to take a photograph of it so she could send it as an image file by email to a relative overseas, so I did, she also said she’d like to see it blown up on a canvas to put on her wall so I’ve gone and done that for her Xmas present (shhh she doesn’t know yet, obviously).

A little late with this one this week but it does mean I get to show this image below. I took this photo of a painting my Grandmothers’ Father painted, she wanted a nice photo of it so she could email a copy to some family who live in Australia.
