Odyssey – definition : a quest or epic journey.
Describing my own journey as epic would be pretentious. After all, when I took this picture at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, I’d just got off the train from Bexleyheath to Charing Cross. Commuting into London one morning, I came across these sculptures by chance, as they were being unloaded from a van. Part of Robert Koenig’s travelling exhibition – called Odyssey – the limewood figures were temporarily placed around a lamppost, before being taken inside the church.
For me, part of the joy of photography is finding subjects that make me look twice, especially ones that make me smile. And because you never know what’s around the next corner, I’ve learnt to carry a camera whenever I can. Some of my best pictures are the ones that got away, because I didn’t have a camera with me. How about you?
