Nan’s 80th

Not much to say about this but the photos speak for themselves, my Nan is awesome and as a surprise the whole extended family on that side surprised her by appearing at her 80th.

It was a great weekend, the log cabin we stayed in was the envy of my parents (resulting in them booking it for a few months later).That Cabin is possibly the most calming place I’ve ever stayed (tie with a retreat place in Huddersfield)

Uncle Nick who normal lives in hotter climates (Thailand and Saudi) came over with his son (my cousin Simon) and his daughter Anabel (obvs my other cousin). I’ve seen Simon a few times through the years but Anabel must have been 7 or 8 last time I saw her.

Bobbie really enjoyed siting next to Nana, Amelie enjoyed having lots of food (common theme there). These images are of us at the cabin, Glastonbury Abbey (it’s huge)  and then the meal – great weekend with a family that doesn’t often come together but when we do it’s like we have never been apart.

Memory from Summer Holiday 2010

Many people say “the camera is a mirror with memory” and much like memory some parts are forgotten and other emphasised and that is what I feel I have done here. I haven’t used every photograph taken but emphasised the ones I have taken as i think they show something special. Not really sure if this elevates their meaning or does nothing to it all… however like all true art it isn’t determined to be good by me; I mealy display spinets of life for others to look upon and judge, what makes art great is what other meaning people find within it. So look an enjoy.
