Another week (and a bit), another late blog, another self-inflicted challenge but thankfully a successful photo-shoot.
Last Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to the Tobacco Factory Market in Southville where ace lampshade maker Ruth McAllister a.k.a. Quincy Lampshades set out her stall. Ruth was interested in having some shots she could use on her website, twitter feed, facebook page or other publicity.
I was somewhat unsure of what to expect. After all, I am neither a serial market goer nor did I ever think I would ever be photographing lampshades. Always up for a challenge I was happy to oblige and thankfully the results were good.
Ruth builds a wall of lampshades on her stall that is quite stunning with a fabulous mix of colours and designs all jostling for pride of place.
I really want to thank Ruth for asking me to do this shoot with her and I look forward to some of the images appearing around the internet very soon.
All my favourites are on my web site here. Please come over and check them out. I feel sure you will enjoy looking at them as much as I did capturing them.
Ruth has also blogged about her experience and is showing her favourite images from the selection on her blog here. Please show your support by dropping in to say 'hi'.
