A couple of weeks ago Andy bought a journal to archive some of the working prints we’ve produced, so today we started to categorize the images (more soon). The previous two weeks were spent reviewing and editing images Andy had taken in Gainsborough (below) and Birmingham.

During our discussions, we talked about how we anthropomorphize the made environment…
More processing and editing (top right is Andy’s first display print – Tennyson). The first four display prints have – finally – been installed at The Pathways Centre (images to follow), and the next three are in the safe hands of Dom and Dan at the minilab. Andy has finished processing all of his work from the Sleaford to Lincoln walk he took a few weekends ago, and we’re now in the process of deciding which of these will be the next images to be printed for display…
PS Sorry Andy, I’ve just noticed that you’re blinking in this photograph.

Today we caught up with some old friends. Michael and James were back at Pathways visiting people, and we gossiped about the project, life, photography and, well, life again! Last week Andy, David and Louise reviewed the project images, ideas and ambitions thus far; steady progress towards our dozen display images (above is one of the Andy’s photographs from his recent work in Gainsborough). The week prior to that, David and Andy went for a walk along the Fosse, and found this thoughtful fella…
This week we reviewed all of the images from the project so far (and selected four more for display printing), last week we visited the new exhibition at The Collection and the MA Fine Art show at Lincoln University. The week before that we visited the Arboretum (see above). September has been a time of reflection.
Three weeks of processing the Cathedral shoot for Andy (above and below), two weeks of shooting for Kane, and David and Kim have done a bit of both! Louise and David have arranged to meet on Thursday, 10 October to review the project… is it really a year already?
It’s been a busy summer so far, with Kev (above), Michael and James moving on and Kim, Simon and Andy moving in (well, moving into Framework managed accommadation in Gainsborough). Last week and this, David and Andy have been out photographing historic Lincoln. Last week we visited the Bishop’s Palace, this week we visited Lincoln Cathedral… lots of images to process during our next session.
Today Kane, Kevin, Andy and David went to re-shoot the Willow Island and the Glory Hole. Andy joined the project last week, and although he is currently living with Kevin and Robert up in Gainsborough, he is originally from Lincoln, and he knows the city very well. Whilst we were walking from the Brayford to the Glory Hole, Kane noticed this unusual view of Lincoln Castle… interesting shot Kane. Michael and James put in cameo appearences before the end of the session, it was good to catch up with them. James moves into his own place next week – GOOD LUCK JAMES!
Last week David and Kane went for a hot beverage on Moonraker, Lincoln’s very own Tearoom on a barge! Captain Christine was very welcoming, and Kane liked the place so much he decided to to take some photographs (including this one of David reading Alastair’s article in the THE). Later we bumped into Peaceful Warrior, and had a good gossip about Lincoln as a ‘r+evolutionary’ place…
Today was another busy day, collecting display prints from Dom (The Writing is on the Wall – Louise Kent is an artist!), visiting The Collection to have a closer look at the new exhibition, and discussing how we might expand the OPOP project to include other Framework sites across the East Midlands… all very exciting.
It’s been a busy few weeks for those involved in the project. Louise has been appointed The Pathways Centre Service Manager (permanent), Robert has started a Prince’s Trust team-building course in Gainsborough, James has visited his daughter ‘down south’ and Kane has bought his first digital camera… exciting stuff. Last week we watched this TED Talk by David Byrne, which we found inspirational; today we re-shot Kev’s image idea of the Usher (below).
