A Not So Smelly Shoot
Being a freelance photographer, I get to take photos in all manner of places. Some more glamorous than others. This particular shoot was one from the 'not so glamorous' list.
One Saturday morning, mid-May, I went along to Deephams Sewage Works in Edmonton. The sewage works, operated by Thames Water, is soon to undergo some upgrade works, and before that happened, local residents were invited to go on a tour of the works to help them understand more about how it works and how it will be improved. I was tasked with taking photos of the tours and the participants. There were a mixture of adults and children along with them, and some of the children made photographing the tour a pleasure, as they were pretty photogenic and/or cute.
I was pleasantly surprised that even what I was told were the smelliest parts of the sewage works didn't actually smell that bad. I definitely anticipated it being worse!
Thanks to the Thames Water team for taking us around and looking after everyone. Here are a few of my favourite shots from the morning...
