Straight and Curvy
Another photo from my recent walk through Leyton. I took it partly for the repeated vertical rhythm of the poles and the trees, and partly because the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower -- the centerpiece of the site of the 2012 Olympics -- is visible in the distance. Apparently that tower is now open to the public. One of these days I'll have to go check it out.
Otherwise, what's going on around here? Well, not much. Yesterday I finished my shelf-reading and organizing in the non-fiction section of our library. I found many mis-shelved (is that a word?) books, so I was happy about that.
As I mentioned before, I'm working with the Royal Photographic Society on another project, this one about barber shops and hair salons in London. I chose and submitted a set of 13 photos, which will be published in a book along with those of other photographers doing other urban-themed projects. I recently saw digital versions of the page layouts and it looks like it will be a nice book. There's also going to be a small exhibit opening in early November.
Oh, and Olga's going to be in the book, too! Remember when my photographer friend Susi visited in May and photographed Olga in our back garden and on Hampstead Heath? (The day her Kong was stolen -- argh!) Well, Susi's project is focused on dogs of London -- and this shot of Olga will be included. Our famous girl!
