Another visit to the allotment, this time with Carl, we have more visits scheduled to get some shots that I have as ‘toil’ in the back of my mind. I haven’t made up my mind whether to do this assignment in black and white or not. The use of monochrome would be there to emphasise two different differences. Firstly the the toil and sweat that the Gross’ apply to raise money might be better depicted in mono, the climate certainly is at the moment! And secondly I want to juxtapose the photographs that Carl has provided of the Thai children and their environment, which whilst it isn’t luxuriant it is certainly warm and colourful.
These shots were taken over two visits, but only one had Carl in them. The problem I have with the term ‘toil’ is that Carl is an incessantly happy and positive person, so a grim determined Carl is going to be a difficult shot to capture.
