My name is David Meredith, originally from Cheshire, England I have lived in Canada for over 20 years, most of them in Ontario.
I started this blog to document my 52 week photo project which I started on January 1st 2018. Having reached the end of 2018 I decided not to continue the project into 2019, for reasons that should have become apparent as 2019 progressed.
However my plans for 2019 got changed quite dramatically after having to have treatment for a wound on my right leg at the start of the year. A couple of weeks after finishing treatment for the leg wound I fell off the ladder early in the spring which resulted in surgery, rehabilitation, physiotherapy and yet more change of plans for the year.
A bit of history.
I got interested in photography in the mid 1970s, studied it in the late 1970s and have been a photographer ever since. First published in the early 1980s I have seen huge changes in the practice and business of photography over the decades.
My first camera was a Zenit E around 1974. I soon started saving for a better camera and in 1976 I brought an Olympus OM1. Actually, I only got the body, there was a price increase imminent so I got the body before the price went up and then had to save for a lens for the camera.
For my commercial work I have used a wide range of equipment and formats over the years but the majority of my personal work has been taken with an Olympus camera of some type. I still have the Olympus OM1 I got in 1976 although it was pretty beaten up and ugly by the time it got retired.
