I love the photography of Martien Mulder and was very excited to see she had started a blog posting images that aren't from a specific project or have been shot for any other reason then because she has a great passion for photography. This got me thinking about my own photography. Recently I have found I have really only been shooting for a specific reason, either a client project or my own project which I hope to get published or be used in some other way. Within the projects there have been images I love but haven't been chosen or don't sit in with the brief and so they get forgotten. The idea of showing them here and also photographing just because, is really appealing, not thinking about the end result or location of where the images will end up is quite liberating. So I will start photographing again, just because, and sharing the left over images from projects here.

I have just complied all the best images of the construction of the new Art and Design Building, the Grove, at Middlesex University, Hendon on my Flickr page which can be found here
I have been visiting the site every month for the last 2 years capturing progress shots of the construction of the building. The building is now open and in use, I have one more visit to photograph the finished exterior of the building and the project will be finished! Can't believe how quickly the last 2 years have gone...
