Well what did I discover this week? Possibly that salmon pink is in all likelihood, the least popular paint colour for a car. I had spotted an old fashioned-looking phone in the window of a local hairdressers of the same hue and decided to see if I could create a whole collage around it. This proved quite a challenge, not least, in finding a similarly coloured car. Thankfully, near the end of my two hours’ walk, I came across one about 5 minutes from returning home. Coincidentally, my mum in NZ came across the same coloured car the next day - a Honda Jazz - I wonder how many were produced and actually sold?
I have also discovered that if you wander down the same very nice square in Chelsea (where a large number of the properties have security cameras facing out to the street) a few times over a 4 months’ period (I have found it to be a rich source of cars and doors to photograph), then a resident will eventually ask you what are you doing. I had literally just photographed the lovely white house in my whites collage when he came up to me. He was very nice about it and I happily informed him that I photographed things to a colour theme and showed him my Instagram posts which seemed to satisfy him that I wasn’t scoping out a property to burgle or a car to steal!
