Behind the scenes with Daddy Donkey

I did some work for Daddy Donkey a while ago to help them create abit of photography for their website. If you don’t know Daddy Donkey, they are the ultimate burrito-mobile machine based in Leather Lane. They make great burritos, I recommend the steak one – it really is as juicy as advertised. I remember the brief for this one because it was alot of fun to do. Joel (the owner) wanted something freestyle and a set of photographs which capture the bustling street feel and also the vividness of the the food. Leather Lane and the vendors who set up their stalls spring to life during the busy weekday lunch periods… and boy were they a tough crowd to manoeuvring around! I shot this throughout an entire service, from about 11 am just as they were setting up shop through to seeding myself – literally – in the centre of the moving crowd to catch some up close and personal wide angles and finally to the winding down period as people return to their offices. It was tiring, challenging but I really had alot of fun doing it. You can see the final results over at the Daddy Donkey official site, they are using alot of the material as a flickr slideshow.

As I was archiving this job, I realised there was enough unwanted material which could be used to put together a photo story of some sort. As you know, I like putting together behind the scenes articles, I was trying out new photo effects as well, in particular I was interested in replicating cross processing, lomo, polaroid, you know sort of faded out vintage film like effects on digital.

Anyway, enough gibberish, here are the results, no subtitles to go with this paper movie (hopefully not needed), and I hope you’ll enjoy the show…
