Whitemoor is a small allotment site in Nottingham. I've had an allotment there for a little over a year. I love spending afternoons watering my vegetables and wandering the narrow lanes. It is off the beaten track, which si perfect if you want to avoid cliche photos!
Whitemoor allotments is such a wonderful place, although located between a busy ring road and an active tram and train line, when you’re inside it’s like another world. All the fuss and bother of everyday life drifts away. The privet lined alleyways and lanes feel so safe and everyone you meet is friendly and welcoming. Peering into the allotments themselves is another joy; they can be neat and orderly or wild and unkempt; no two alike. There are make-shift sheds and unstable greenhouses as well as some unusual and interesting doors. Whitemoor allotments is one of my favorite places to go for some peace and quite in addition to being one of the best places to shoot; there is always something new to spot on every visit.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
