30 Day Snap Challenge | Day 30
It's the final day of the 30 day snap! I honestly can't believe I actually made it to the end. I feel proud of my achievement and that I have documented, for the most part, a month of my life whether that be through photographs or words. I'm not going to lie, it has been hard work and finding inspiration from some testing days to produce an image I am proud to share was difficult. So to avoid boring you with self praise, lets quickly move on to the final installment of this challenge.
Today, all photography students at my school went on a workshop with The Guernsey Photography Festival where we were given a presentation at Castle Cornet and then explored Mill Street in town to take some photos based on the theme 'faith,family and community.' Castle Cornet is now used as a museum so on our break, a couple of friends and I ventured around the castle grounds and sneaked into one of the exhibits. My friend has a fear of wax works and the whole place is said to be haunted so we were all a little scared and held each others hands as we walked slowly through. We weren't in there long before we could hear foot-steps. We all began to panic. Could this be a ghost? Would we make it back? As we reached the corner, expecting the worst, we let out a yelp as we saw one of the employees slowing passing through. Not the ghost we had expect but our hearts were still racing. Needless to say we got out of there as soon as we could.
This particular image was taken at the top of Mill Street. This large gate covered the doorway to a clothes shop that helps support cancer. It was closed but I found the detail on the metal interesting and liked how the ribbons added subtle colour. There are loads of little shops up that road that I really must visit more often.
