Appreciating the small details
Did you see the article on Sue-Ann and the Levenshulme Daily Photograph in last week's South Manchester Reporter? [Or the wonderful interview on Channel M which followed...?] Another example of local creativity and a conscious choice to see the positive, the beauty in the mundane. It kind of reminded me of the Harvey Keitel character in Paul Auster/Wayne Wang's movie Smoke, the way he photographed a view of the same street corner at the same time every day.
I'd stumbled across the blog back in January, a link via a link via a link, thought it was a great idea and sent a lovelevenshulme postcard pronto. Sue-Ann photographed the postcard (it being a small detail of everyday life - it's on her blog here). Susannah Wright at the South Manchester Reporter saw the blog and emailed me to ask if I was behind it (I put her straight on that score rightaway and got her in touch with Sue-Ann) and a couple of weeks later it's in print and I'm blogging about it...
