Today began with a powerpoint about what this pathway would involve and it was interesting to see all the avenues it could lead to, however I am sure that I will be choosing the fashion and textiles pathway. We then had a presentation about the power of the lens and learnt about the origins of the camera from Galileo's telescope to Camera Obscura techniques. I found interesting the discussion of the camera's function as a protector of moments and memories as it captures a point in time forever unlike our fading memories. After this, we had to choose one image of the pictures we had taken to recreate on A1 paper. I chose the image of the fashion show crowd as we had one hour to complete the piece and I wanted to set myself a challenge. The image itself is below and so is the drawing. We also had to complete an exercise in cropping the image to reshape the meaning and the content which I have also done. I decided to use cropping to shape the relations between the crowd members as with each cropped image, everyone appears to be with different people.

We then had to take pictures around Greenwich Peninsula based on several words which are listed under the images below:
