My blog post was about the challenge and the excitement of photographing Lewes Bonfire celebrations, and the joy of how photography can capture what the eyes are unable to see. You can read about it here: https://www.carlottaluke.com/it-was-a-banger-of-a-night/

My photo of the week last Friday was all about Lewes Bonfire, the exuberant celebrations that take place in my little town in East Sussex. You can read my blog here: https://www.carlottaluke.com/its-bonfire-time-of-year-again/
I will be heading out again tonight with my camera but in the meantime, I have added more photos of this spectacular event to my website for your enjoyment:

The thousand-year-old Langney Priory that I am documenting in #Eastbourne featured as my photo of the week last Friday. The plans for the restoration and redevelopment of this little-known historic treasure are truly inspiring. You can read about it here https://www.carlottaluke.com/a-1000-year-old-building/

Photo of the week: I document all kinds of construction sites, not just heritage ones. This is the Arndale Centre, a new shopping mall going up in Eastbourne. Every month I chart the progress being made for my clients to share with stakeholders and investors. Finding interesting colours on building sites always makes me happy. Getting colour and reflective puddles at a shoot makes me doubly so. By the way, my new website is now up and running. I would love to hear what you think if you get a chance to pop over and take a look.

My photo of the week is from a new project documenting the change of use of an old grain store to a new holiday apartment right in the midst of the South Downs near Lewes.
I like this stage of a renovation, when the blue of the sky looks like it is the roof of the building. You can find some moody, wintery shots of the site from my first shoots. I was tempted to use them but then thought that a spring photo would be more appropriate.
The rest of the photos are here:

Photo of the week: The construction work at the Stephen Lawrence Trust Centre is complete, so my part in the project is finished and the blossoming of the Centre into a co-working hub for up-and-coming architects has now begun. It has been a joy to photograph this building and to watch it spring to life. I come away feeling grateful that my skills could have a very practical application in helping a charity that I believe in deeply. What more can one ask for.

Photo of the week: I love the work I do. Then there are days when I really love the work I do because it exposes me to new experiences that I would never have had otherwise. On Easter Monday I went to photograph a race track in the middle of the countryside for my monthly feature in our local Viva Lewes magazine. The races on show included historic stock cars, Rookie Rods and the Bangers world qualifiers. This spectacular crash happened during the second Bangers race. The driver had to escape through the gap where the windscreen would have been (none of the cars have glass windscreens) because his door was rammed by another car.
You can see more photos of the day here:

Photo of the week: I am currently documenting the 200-year-old Brighton Dome Corn Exchange where a major refurbishment is under way. I make regular visits with my camera, photographing both the building process and the people working there. It is always a pleasure to find interesting colours on site. In fact, construction areas are often filled with unexpected colour. It made my day to spot this geometric pattern of yellow, pink, red, blue, brown and grey.

Photo of the week: I am pleased that my site visit to the Stephen Lawrence Trust happened to fall on a snowy day. There can be magic in photographing snow and its transformation of the familiar into something almost etherial. My colleague at the Trust pointed out that I have now been documenting the renovation of the Centre over a full year (and in all weather). That is a satisfying thought and at the heart of my aim to capture the essence of a place through how it both changes and remains constant over time.

Photo of the week: we are definitely not in Sussex...
I find it interesting to think about details that specify place. It is often only with distance that they are noticeable. Last week my daughter and I were back in New England. On our last morning we woke to this - the neighbourhood transformed overnight into a soft icy world lit by a bright winter sun. This fence, the mailbox, the architecture and the quality of light, not to mention the snow - they are completely commonplace in Boston. It is only because I have been in the UK for half my life that they become symbolic of a place I lived years ago.
