Blue Skies in Coventry
Even though I’ve now been working in Coventry for nearly a year I realised I’ve never really taken the camera out with me, and on our recently walk to check out Fargo Village I started to started to build what will inevitably be a growing collection of Coventry photograph.
The main square, with lady Godiva on her horse. The legend is that around the 11th or 12th century an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman rode naked through the streets of Coventry in protest over some taxes – and somehow it has become a symbol for the city.
As the academic teaching year draws to a close there is going to be a degree show, ‘This Creative City‘ to display some of the creations of the art and design students at the University.
Something I really value about photography is that it makes me look at places in more detail. I walk down this street nearly every day and I know the wall is covered in this ivy plant but it took until today with a camera in hand to really look at how the plant is taking over the wall.
