This week, I was down in Kent helping a friend out with her children. One afternoon, while preparing an obstacle course for after school playtime, I spotted a mirror propped up against her shed. Well, I couldn’t miss that opportunity, could I?! Her garden is overlooked from all directions and I could hear and see a gardener at work, so I quickly squeezed myself into the one hidden corner the garden affords.
On Friday I went to Shape of Light, 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art at the Tate Modern. Lots of my old favourites were there – Brassai, Man Ray, Bill Brandt, Imogen Cunningham – plus many new finds; I’d really recommend it!
I decided to play around with my camera to try and get an abstract shot for today, but in the end I liked this one the best. Not really abstract but I like the simplicity and symmetry.
(n.) desire to stay in the sun; love of sunlight
My lounge windows are huge. At this time of year, as early evening rolls around, the sunlight floods in and bathes the room and all who are in it in gold. Fresh out of the shower and still damp, one of my favourite things to do is just bask in the glow.
