At a recent wedding


Nirvana

Lying on the grass at the top of our garden on Quickley Lane, the apple tree to my right, the silver birches behind me, the latter not yet condemned to death by the wasps' nest in their base. In the house, the rest of my family - mum, dad, brother, sister. Overhead, blue sky turning evening. Its the school holidays - near the beginning, not the end, so peace, and exciting, stomach-tingling thoughts of play. I turn and look at the grass up close: a ladybird; arcing blades of green; the world beneath my feet. I turn back to the sky - swallows flit about above: it is warm, it is quiet, it is infinite.
I'm called in for bed.

Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan


Welcome to Mrs Lemon's: Sic transit gloria mundi.

A more considered selection of photographs, and more commercial work, can be found at http://patrickdoddsphotography.co.uk where you will also find my Flickr stream.

"Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute - I thought it had a ring to it :) Before I saw this (there is a picture of it somewhere on here taken many moons ago), the bolg (I mean "blog" of course, but today bolg sounds like a better description somehow), the bolg was known as Ten Years of Pictures, my target being when I set out to take a picture a day for 10 years; probably luckily for everyone concerned, I failed in this and instead I give you the melange that is Mrs Lemon's; I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - I think this has to do with a policy Google has of only keeping one copy of a photo and sharing it between Picassa (where I want to store nothing) and here; I'm not sure but I think any pictures on here have to be on Picassa but there you go. Whatever is happening with the missing pictures, apologies.
