Just Portraits

I’m currently in Kuala Lumpur, having attended the Mt Rokko Photo Festival last weekend as a reviewer (I will write an in-depth post about that amazing festival shortly), and I just had fantastic KLPA awards and exhibition, celebrating 10 years of the awards. The last weeks had been incredible,  making new connections with creative people and seeing many interesting photo projects, especially from young photographers, or even non-creative people attempting their first photo projects.

Meanwhile, I shot a few portraits below in preparation for a Street Portrait workshop this coming Saturday with my ‘new’ Nikon 1 V1 camera I got from Facebook Marketplace last month for a mere £100!

Carnival Glimpses

Having missed the last 4 carnivals over the Bank Holiday weekend, this year I made a quick visit on the main day which is on the Monday, a holiday in the UK.  Here are a few images from the day.

Grafitti Street

The Nottinghill Carnival begins tomorrow but the big board-up began in earnest this Saturday evening on the main roads and side streets around the carnival route. As soon as one shop front is boarded up, the packs of graffiti artists with multi-coloured spray cans in hand would begin their artistry. More businesses and private homes have chosen to board up their frontages in anticipation of the huge crowds over the 2 days.
