poppy day

freezing cold, rain threatening to chuck it down, wind blowing hard, dark angry skies... must be a good day to go out and take photos...
i was in a sombre mood(artistically speaking), and thinking of very minimal black+white imagery as we headed from the warmth of the coffeeshop basement to the Peace Garden on Hollowayhead.














i've been here a couple of times for photography sessions, over the years... me and H. did a session here when i lived about 10 minutes away(back in the days before the area suddenly became an yuppie ghetto), i even went to a computer college opposite(to study basic programming and windows - as i had no experience of PC's back in 1994, like a lot of people!), and we've been here with the flickr meet before... but as it was poppy day, it was wisely decided to return again.
and i got to do some good images...
i like this one of a bench(even though benches are quite mundane things to photograph)


next weekend i shall hopefully be in a nice warm pub, taking photos of a burlesque modelling session... which is about as far away from this enviroment as it gets...
