Toto's Newsagent

This was a photography project where we were each told to find a "corner shop" and photograph it for several days. It was a project intended to show the shop throughout a normal day. For the record, opening time was 4:45AM. (The sole reason for me telling you that is so I can publicly complain about being outside taking pictures at 4:45AM.) In these photos you'll see the manager of Toto's Newsagent, a sweet lady from Northern Ireland who is responsible for almost everything that goes on. You'll also see the delivery man who comes twice a week and stays for an hour to chat with the manager and have tea and digestives (that means cookies, Americans), a local boy delivering the morning papers and some of the regular customers. I loved seeing how such a strong community was built by this tiny corner shop. I also loved remembering that I don't usually have to wake up at 4AM. Enjoy!

Tourist London

Our first photo assignment in London was to take pictures of tourist icons. The things that people think of when they hear "London". I tried to make mine different than the usual. I didn't want to take a bunch of architecture pictures, so I tried to photograph how I see London. That said, they won't be pictures you'd expect to see on a postcard, but hopefully you'll enjoy them anyways.
