2011 project (January to March)

I decided to try something different and, after moving to London, I bought a disposable camera and started to photograph bits and pieces of daily life. It’s been interesting to use one of these cameras, especially me being so used to the weight and ‘complexity’ of the digital SRL. It’s literally to point and shoot and there isn’t a pressure to be aesthetically perfect – well, beauty also lies in imperfection. I do like that blurry and grainy aspect so characteristic of film, there’s a certain nostalgia to it; and I definitely enjoy the idea of being able to easily document all of those details and moments I wouldn’t usually photograph.

first dinner with the housemates @ Chinatown
ghost tube
Sunday photowalk @ the Barbican centre
a typical journey in the bus to Central London
visit to Thorpe Park - a great day
Stealth ride @ Thorpe Park - oh, the adrenaline
The Tidal Wave @ Thorpe Park - no other ride was as bad as this one, and all because of the temperature shock we suffered when we got hit by the water... twice! we definitely made a mistake by going on this ride. would I do it again? knowing myself, probably yes!

these months have been full of meetings, and this photo is from my latest one. it was a beautiful sunny day by the Thames, drinking mojitos. thanks to Jordon and James for the lovely company.
