FRIDAY FAVES // THIS WEEK’S GOOD STUFF 29.06.12

Some weeks you’ve got to search high and low for inspiration.  Other times, you just find it right there on your doorstep.  London’s all kinds of wonderful in that way.

// ONE FOR THE BOOKISH //
Live in East London? Love books?  Check out the all new Goldsmith Row Book Market   organised by a friend of Tom’s.   We checked it out on Sunday and were pretty impressed by the variety of stalls including Foyles and other independents.  If you’re NOT on a book-buying-ban like I am (seriously, I have knee-high stacks on my floor because my giant bookshelf is about to implode with the weight) then please go have a look one weekend, I’m sure they would love to see you there.  It’s just next to Hackney City Farm and a hop and a skip from Columbia Road Flower market.

// ONE FOR THE CAFE SET //
My lazy weekend also involved a trip to Pitfield a cafe/shop/exhibition space rolled in to one and sitting pretty just north of Old Street.  While their cafe is the kind of place you could easily chill out with a delicious pastry or two, your eyes are working hard taking in all the visuals being thrown at it from across the shop floor.  The shop sells a lovely mix of new and old; and yes, I want everything.

// ONE FOR THE BRIDES AND GROOMS //
I stumbled across this article about Embracing Alternative Timelines on your wedding day. OK, it’s not the most in-depth article in the world, and it’s geared to a US market, but it got me thinking.  When almost every aspect of a wedding can be personalised these days, why are 99.99% of couples sticking with a traditional timeline?  I don’t know, maybe it’s what works best, or maybe it’s just what people think is expected of them.  Either way, I like the idea of shaking it up a little bit.  And you know, I’d still love to photograph a first look (sadly none of my brides and grooms have taken me up on it yet!).

// ONE FOR A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE //
One of the most amazing things about photography for me, is how it lets you nosey in on a life that you couldn’t ever even imagine.  Have a look at this series called Horn Please by Dan Eckstein.

//ONE FOR THE EASILY AMUSED //
I am loving Mark O’Brien’s work.  He crafts cardboard into…well…almost anything you could possible imagine.  Check out the camera! And the Y-fronts!
