This was January, 2020

After a year of radio silence, I feel it is time to start posting some of life’s little wonders on this  blog once again. For the year 2020 I have decided to document life with a different theme colour in mind each month. This month’s theme: black and white.

January 2020

The start of a new year. The first careful lines on that intimidating blank paper. The writing of lists, the determination to stick to carefully crafted resolutions & the knowledge that you probably never will. Leaving the old behind, while bravely trying to take in all that is to come. Savouring the briefness of winter days, watching birds travel further south while wondering down familiar paths leading you home before darkness falls.

January 2020, with its world on fire in a place far from mine. January, with its loss of an old British friend & its panic over a new, aggressive nemesis. January, with its winter that felt like autumn, its pulling winds & its impatient spring crocuses.

Thank you, January, for your insight & your newness. Thank you for allowing me to take a moment to reflect & reconsider, before stepping into the rest of year…

Life is beautiful

This is my story of 2018. My story of connecting, reconnecting, welcoming & parting.
This is the past years through the eye of this beholder; my humble contribution to the world’s vast collection of imagery.

This is my everyday life. My simple tale of small adventures, close to home & close to heart.
This is the shared intimacy of family; the familiarity of a smile, a scent & a gesture. The thin line between what we share, what we think we share and what we can’t help but share.

This is my beautiful, colorful & fortunate life, stripped down to its bare essentials. Stripped of words, meaning or context.

This is my story & this is me sharing it with you.

Wishing you all a beautiful & unforgettable 2019!

The Cutting Room Floor (2017) – B&W

 After a month of grey winter weather, it’s no wonder that I feel in the mood to share a couple of this year’s loveliest black & white photos with you; photos that never made it to the blog before, but which deserved an audience all the same. And don’t worry; tomorrow the colorful version of my annual cutting room floor images will be online, to truly brighten your day!
