Weekly Inspiration: An Olympic mish-mash.

Hello! This is a weekly feature where I share my photos with you. I carry my camera everywhere, snapping pictures of things that inspire me. Prepare to see lots of colourful and heavily-patterned things through my lens!

I live in London, and the Olympics have been (delightfully) unavoidable for the past few weeks. Here are some Olympic-ish photos, peppered liberally with the usual dose of cake and colour.

Stripes of blue seats at the women’s basketball semi-finals.

Rainbow bottles forming horizontal stripes.

Dazzling lights on the basketball court.

Some equally dazzling pink lemonade bars.

The Random Project: Postcards, snails and scribbles.

Hello! Have you heard about the Random Project? In the run-up to the 2012 Olympics, the public has been invited to create hand-made postcards in response to a random keyword they are given. The postcards will then be exhibited in March 2012. I thought it would be fun to take part.

My random word was sport. Now, I’m not the most athletic person in the world, so at first I was stuck. But then I remembered it was about what the word meant to me. And so, I drew a good sport. (I guess that’s what the Olympics are about too.)

This is my favourite one. I like the idea of using a couple of snails to illustrate the idea of ‘sport’. Hee hee.

My initial attempts involved robots, but then I realised I liked snails better.
