Photo of the Day – iheartstreetphotography

 

April 8, 2010

We went to check this iheartstreetphotography exhibit out. A little disappointing.

My flat mates and I set out to check this iheartstreetphoto exhibit  out. It was a little disappointing as you can see by the photograph. Not many people, just calming standing around stairing at the 4 foot by 4 foot square projection.

But the message is key!

I Heart Street Photo’s Twitter describes itself as, “An exhibition of new street photography in light of the impending government restrictions on photography in public places.”

I agree with Heart Street Photo.

According to their Web site, they are about the celebration of street photography.

I agree even more.

What is unique about I Heart Street Photo is the fact that photographers are being cracked down upon from taking photos – in public.

A Sunday Times article describes the situation many photographers – even tourists –  are facing in London and the world today. The article highlights how the loss of public or street photography can take away the necessary documentation of today’s current culture.

Where does the line between public and ‘privacy’ end?

Advocate.

Hey Buddy Music Video Shoot

This is my Photo of the Day.

I was a Runner on a music video shoot for Hey Buddy TV. I also got to be an extra, which is always fun. The shoot was for a song called “Something Special” by a singer named Al Brown. Hey Buddy has previously made music videos such as Jay Sean‘s “Down.”

March 28, 2010

A Sony EX3 of course!

 

This is our star, Al.

 

This is the bar, where I was an extra with my buddies on the right.

 

The crew and stars at work. Emily, center, plays the girl Al the singer is following.

 

Colored lights always add a nice touch.

 

This is the bar tender, who, obviously isn't an actual bar tender.

 

The 'DJ' hanging out.

Covent Garden

Covent Garden was a little more posh than I expected. It’s primarily a cool steel and glass structured building where artisans and their crafts filter out and off to the side.

Inside the CG.

 

Inside the building are cute little shops where one can drop a lot on soap that looks and smells like candy or a variety of teas and modern ornamented tea sets. The crafters in this area are more pricey and capitalized than those on the outskirts. There can be found hand blown glass ornaments, sewn kitsch dolls, or watch a scene get painted in a matter of minutes. Restaurants in this portion are more like fair foods that are slightly less greasy, smell a lot more appetizing, and will make your mouth water.

The symbol of CG.

 

Surrounding the center is cobbled walking areas where street performers set up and large crowds of tourists and Londoners alike gather. This is great for kids and their parents as the street performers cater their routine towards adults and children; there are a few jokes in there that slip right over their heads. There’s the small church and garden, as well as other aesthetically pleasing pieces of architecture. Heading off on the side streets, there are numerous cool and trendy shopping stores, however, if you are set on a pair of Doc Martins, be ready to drop at least 70 Quid.

Pretty crowed, only I don't get why. Maybe they don't know either.

Photo of the Day – Walking Boots

March 8, 2010

These boots were made for walking.

London takes a lot of walking – even with their great metro transportation system – the tube, and their even more detail routed bus system. If there’s one kind of shoe Londoners seem to wear most – it’s the flat knee-high boot. And I’ve worn these since I got to the city in January. Still working head-on strong, these boots will be worn and adventures they have taken and will take.
