“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.”

Getting back into the swing of things was easy today, usually after the weekend it’s a slow start with many people who are supposed to respond to phonecalls and emails citing Monday as a day impossible to do any of these things by…Well today it was quite the opposite!

It’s difficult for me to get excited about fruit salad these days because I can’t eat most of the things that go into it. I have a latex allergy – and the protein present in latex is also found in fruit and other foods. It’s surprising just how much really.

Regardless though, I’m not prejudice over what I Photograph – thankfully.

I improvised a little with the backdrop, using a chopping board to try and create a white background of sorts. It almost worked! I’m also getting ready for a second photo-shoot for work tomorrow – again ‘of sorts.’ My images taken a week or so ago for the advertising banners at job fayres went down really well so a second banner is being created. That means a trip out to photograph a completely different client in the hopes that the shot will be suitable. Fingers Crossed!
