Assignment One – Square Mile – Further Development of Ideas

Tomorrow I will plan a walk so that I can go around all of the places below for Sqaure Mile. I will also take a letter on the walk so that I can collaborate with the public. My aim is still to use the Johari window theme with collaboration, and York facts. Complete both projects and then when I develop the photos I can see which works better as a series.

Unrepealed Law – In the city of York it is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1568475/Ten-stupidest-laws-are-named.html (accessed on 16/08/2017))
