A finished quilt meant that I was entitled to a little photographic adventure.
I called my girlfriend Juli (whom had contacted me for a walk) and asked if she wanted to tag along. Yes indeed she did. Like me, she wanted out of the house and away from the incessant sports on TV. So a trip to Clarendon..Not too far from home but far enough to be called country. The countryside has that wet green look, vibrant green saturated in moisture and the misty dank rain clouds hanging over the hills, looming with suggestions of cold wet air and chilly breezes. But although it suggested that, it was quite pleasant for getting out and about and failed to rain or dampen our spirits.
Well the finished product is definitely a girly quilt. I had it in mind to photograph the quilt hanging from the Clarendon bridge. (below)
There was no real access to the water course below (without trespassing into a power station) or getting really wet. Not being big on planning I had totally inappropriate shoes on to transverse down a hillside. And the path on the bridge was non existent and far too much traffic passing by. So I took a couple of shots from the top of the bridge - You get the idea of what I was planning - and headed into town to take shots with their lovely old buildings . (be prepared for lots of photos of the same _ I just love a good stone wall!
|Are your ready?? Juli pops her head from behind the quilt!|
What do you think that little square hole is for - ventilation??
At the general store...boy this quilt gets around. We went to the antique store and met the owners whom had been planning opening the shop for 25 years (can you believe it). It was a lovely shop and lovely people..obviously they dont rush into anything!
We went to the local pub after the antique store for coffee....limited choice of coffee venues..it was getting late in the day. We had the coffee and then stayed for a red in front of the fire. We were totally charmed by our visit to Clarendon...friendly folk, good company and a little tipple to boot. Maybe I'll try to photograph the bridge another time??
