About twelve months ago I went to the Town Hall in Ivanhoe and took some photos of the outside of the building. The building is referred to as the The Centre Ivanhoe and it a wonderful Art Deco building that sits on top of a hill at the top of the shopping strip in Ivanhoe. Everyone who lives around here knows the building.
Anyone can go and take photos of the outside, but I wondered if I could get access to take photos inside. So I have been trying on and off all year to get access, and finally got onto a person who could help me.
I was given access to photograph the main hall when it was set up for a function. You can’t quite see here, but it is set up for a Valedictory Dinner for a local school. I thought it would be much nicer to see it set up for a function.
I plan on going back in the next few months on different occasions to see what I can do with this building, as long as Liberty Catering don’t mind, I really want to see what I can do with this building. It was good going there yesterday and now I have seen more of what is there, I can now, hopefully plan more images and see what I can do there. So I really hope they will let me go back.
I am going to put the rest of the images in a gallery for you now. I hope you enjoy them.
I also wanted to have a quick word to you about my images. I have never pushed that my images were for sale, and seriously, I didn’t think anyone who read my blog would be interested in purchasing any of them anywhere. I know that when you want to get support for your blog it does drive people away. I know it is something that I have never got from people, well a few yes, very few, but that is not what this is about. I decided that I should start putting all the photos that I take on my website photocart so it would be easier for people to find images that I have taken.
I am slowly creating my own stock library of the images I have taken. I am using my photocart that I had for selling photos of cycling. It just sits there now, so I thought I should use it. Makes sense, I hope. You can take a look at it here Photocart. It is a work in progress, but I will try and spend more time on it over the next few weeks.
Of course the main thing is to put the images up on it that I take. I am going to try to put the images up as I take them, so at the end of each post, if they are images that can be purchased, I will put something at the bottom of the post so people will know. I hope that businesses will find that useful.
So please go and take a look at my photocart. Let me know if there is anything you would like to see up there.
