During my wanderings on the allotments, I’m constantly attracted to small details, so every now and then I plan to post similar collections of images to this.
During my last visit to the allotments, I was invited to spend some time on Dave and Dougie’s plot.
The light was very contrasty, so my picture making efforts were a bit limited. Despite this, I had to take the opportunity to photograph the apricot blossom as this will almost certainly have gone by the time of my next visit. I’ve also included a shot of leaves from the kiwi fruit.
The other images in this set are of odds and ends in Dave and Dougie’s shed and greenhouses. I’m very grateful to them for allowing me this opportunity, which I hope I can repeat as the season progresses – all being well in much easier lighting conditions!
I made my second visit to the allotments on Easter Monday. As it was a holiday, there were plenty of folk around and I spent much of my time chatting to various people, introducing myself and explaining what I was up to. In all I spoke to around a dozen different people, so photography took a bit of a back seat. That said, I did make a few images – here are five of them:
For my final set of images from my first visit to the allotments, I thought that I’d post a collection of pictures of small details that caught my eye during my initial wanderings. I especially like these images because, in some ways they say more about allotment life than the wider scenes and I imagine that I’ll be adding many more like this as the project develops.
