Now that the weather in Britain seems to of changed for the better (fingers crossed) I thought this exhibition was quite relevant, 'Sunny Snaps' at the Bradford Media Museum. The exhibition is on until 31st August which is probably when our summer will also end. The exhibition concentrates on commerical portrait photography which was once common place at tourist destinations and part of the holiday souvenir! Be sure to head down to check out all the photos on display including my all time favourites 'Head in Hole' scenario. For those of you who cannot make it to the exhibition the site is great to explore lots of different photos catergorized for ease such as 'animals' and walkies'. Whats even more great is your encouraged to submit your own sunny snaps through the Flickr group - hope you have fun in the sun!
