Since i got my first camera as a grownup i have been drawn to small details as well as the bigger picture, i now walk around with my new photographers eye and it is this as well as my emotional response to landscape that drives my picture taking. I am an avid fan of markets – all of them (well almost) – flea markets, car boots , food markets, craft markets the ones the W.I. run and the little small ones in the back of village halls, i am drawn to the things left on the floor but also the face’s that are letting them go…i particularly like vintage china and my dog Yuki likes the on floor boxes that contain the 20p soft toys that children no longer want. I like food, all food, the sweet, the sour, the strange, the stories behind recipes and the small details that we all add to make things are own, i like finding my own food in the woods, the seashore, the fields that surround my little cottage and contemplating what to do with them…preserving in vinegars, syrups, marinades, wines, cordials. I get inspired by other peoples ideas and love of creating, i love handmade, refound, remade and i hope this blog will celebrate the small details that we all add to the bigger picture of life..oh and i love singing, dancing, walking and oh yes i do love …silence.
