My friend Sarah at PaisleyRainBoots has been pondering recently about personal photography , a connection to the place, person or occasion. I had a bit of an epiphany yesterday as I was strolling through the grounds at Stourhead in Wiltshire. Stourhead is a magnificent stately home and the grounds are a work of art. The property is often used in film and television . A picture postcard place.
But when I came home and looked through the photographs I was underwhelmed, don’t get me wrong it is a remarkable place, but I felt a decided lack of connection.
The photographs that spoke to me were a set I took at the Pantheon which is going through intense renovation.
So much work needs to be done
Showing the work behind the beauty, the skill of the stonemason is a real connection for me.
And of course there had to be a selfie in a mirror in the wonderful shop.
I will continue to explore what I’m calling ‘heartwork’ how about you ?
A touch of random
I love Spotify have you tried it ?
Some great ideas here at Mollie Makes magazine
Design Seeds never lets me down.
Music I love at the moment the wonderful Richard Thompson HERE
And finally I love the retro look of this shot I created in PicTapGo moved into PS and added the Poloroid look
Have a sunny weekend…..
