    I have made a start on this years project which is to document the allotment site where I have a plot. This will grow over the year - the period I have given myself - and hopefully I will have enough quality and quantity to make a blurb book at the end of it.

    Good idea and nice images but will you be adding some narrative as you go along?

    I will. I think context and intent is important.

    What is an allotment site?

    Also you have a very Jean Reno look going on. :thumbup:

    Looking forward to this, we're just heading into our second year of allotment ownership and I intend to document it all this year (just for fun).

    It's all a bit too boggy to do anything at the moment though!

    It is an area of land sub-divided into smaller plots and rented to people to grow vegetables or flowers on. They can be owned by Local Authorities, or often a group of people band together to form an allotment society ... they have open days and produce competitions and are a very British institution.

    The allotment idea for a project is inspired ... I was bought 'the passionate photographer' for Xmas and it spurred me into doing a project for a year. I have chosen a small National Trust wood where I walk the dogs a lot, not sure how it will work out or how strong my commitment will be but it is making me think.
