Lucia Pizzani - A Garden for Beatrix - Private View


The opening night of Lucia Pizzani's exhibition at the Cecilia Brunson Project in Bermondsey, London, earlier this week. Other photos were taken but, well, I was inspired to shake things up a little this time. Hands. There came a point in the (very lively and successful) evening when everyone seemed to be gesticulating, almost in concert - it was lovely, like being at a performance.

Eden Phillpotts

"The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."

When children run upon the Moor

"When children run upon the Moor, they seldom look much further than the ground at their feet, for there their treasures lie. When the old come hither, they gaze far off into the hills and upon the sky above them."
Eden Phillpotts.



Also:

"There are rare moments when the golden link of all matter seems visible and we forget our insignificance and feel a part appreciable of the splendid whole. The air we breathe is the same that burns in glory under the sun; the water and the lime that build us are also in the precipices and palaces of the summer clouds and the bones of the land beneath our feet. On such days we claim kinship with the elements and share their life and greatness and justification. They are festivals of all earth's thanksgiving and their lyric hymn throbs from the harp of a mighty minstrel, for it is the anthem of the rapture of life."

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.
