A sad post
My lovely Nana passed away yesterday, aged ninety-four, bless her. Nana has had a huge influence on my life. Amongst other things, I inherited her artistic ways and her passion for the Lake District. She had a positive outlook right to the end and embraced adversity with such stoicism...I can learn so much from how Nana lived her life. She was a true inspiration and I will miss her dearly. Her love for the Lakes has helped me confirm my decision to go for landscape. I want to do it for her...to see The Lakes with fresh eyes, and indulge myself in the scenery that inspired her. Like Nana, I am project focussed, so to go out today and not know what to photograph was harder than it sounds...I need a brief in my head and struggle to just go out and take photographs, which my husband finds very odd for a photographer. Inspired by Ellie Davies I went to Whinlatter and sought glimpses of colour in the darkness.
