Badger Inventory 24

26 Nov


My Mum loves badgers, I mean she really loves them. Last week I was visiting my family and I set myself a photo challenge, to capture the best of the badgers in 24 shots. Why 24? Well they live at 24 and my favourite shot is number 24 with the badgers, bricks and cobwebs. Some of the photos are in black and white, like badgers. Remember these are the best of the badgers, I’ve counted there are 82 just in these photos but there are many more hiding in the house.

Why the challenge? Well I like photographing landscapes and nature but recently I’ve been photographing all sorts of strange things like the giant claw in the dusty waste transfer station and the contents of a compost bin during my work making podcasts for Greener Leith. I thought the badgers would be good practice. I like reflections so I was happy to catch a duck in the TV and a lamp shade in the big badger photo frame.


If you know me well or if you came to see me in the Fringe or the West Port Book Festival you’ll have heard about the badgers. If not and you’d like to know how they influenced my poetry in childhood (and why I put pants on the stuffed badgers head) then listen to the West Port Book Festival Podcast here. Let me know which badgers you like best…

    That’s a LOT of badgers! I like the much-used mousepad and the stealth badger on the pen pot (had to look carefully to find that one!)
