I had planned to do a quick update on the exhibition I'm involved with in Colchester, I just needed to go over there first thing Saturday morning so I could get some decent photos of the café and of my pictures hanging on the wall before the place started to fill up. Saturday morning arrived, I grabbed my camera, flash and a suitable lens and headed off to do just that.
Disappointingly I arrived to find the place busier than expected. Ok, I'll admit that in usual Saturday morning style I faffed about somewhat more than necessary and consequently got there later than planned, but it also seemed like the customers had deliberately arranged themselves at the most awkward tables to sit at... either way I'd missed my chance to get the planned photos.
Anyway, rather than disturb all the customers by pointing a big camera at them or asking them to take their croissants to a more convenient table, I got a coffee and elected to discretely take some 'arty' shots with my iPhone.
So although it didn't quite go to plan it worked out fine, they do a rather good macchiato and the exhibition looks great. My six photos are looking rather splendid (biased? me?), hung in what seems to be a prime spot on the main wall on the ground floor and because my fuzzy phone shots only give an impression of what the exhibition is like you still need to pop in yourself and have a look.
