October 2017 theme - A Sense of Place October. A month that brings the promise or threat (in my case) of winter. We all have different environments and the places we call home. So this month, I want you to give me 'A Sense of Place' - a feeling for your environment. It can be as small an area as you wish. It can be your home, your shed, your garden, your street, shops, clubs, pubs, the dark alleys, the beach - whatever you feel sums up your sense of place. I always feel my place is not nearly as interesting as a city. I find it a challenge to make it interesting or even weird to others, who see my work. So whatever your style of photography, I want it to reflect your place and if possible give me a feeling for it. When I see Jack's photos (Done rundlecams), I am at once given a feel for the environment he chooses to show us. Chilling at times, but truly his work gives me a sense of the place he is showing me. Much more than a picture, it's a real feeling of what is happening in that area. Geren shows me a real picture of her environment and the people and places around her. The changes going on and the resilience she somehow gets across in her images. RovingMike's street scenes give me a feeling of being an onlooker of city life. Mostly I see individuality in his shots - or the lonesome lives of city folk going about their business. Somehow in isolation although surrounded by others. Real London life which I can just about remember. So, I hope you see what I mean about the subject for this month. Tell me a story. Show me your place and give me a feel for what your place is all about. Here are some of my efforts to tell you about my place and give you a feel for my environment.
