I gave a little talkette at the local arts centre recently using images from series. It was not my finest hour but I may just show you some of the images I used.
When I started this odyssey some years ago - for a six month spell initially, I was heavily influenced as I have said before by the great images of James Ravilious. Sadly my work does not even come close !
Did I tell you The Crofter has sheeps? No? Well he does have some sheeps. Seems like thousands of the black spooky looking things from somewhere weird - ah yes, The Hebrides - are running round the place.
Stalked this one on the beach field doon the road. Came up on her all quiet like and shot her. With my minolta camera - what do you take me for??
It goes ! It goes!
It did go that day anyway. Must have been a miracle if other days are anything to go by..
Yours truly, the narrator is giving a wee and short talkette illustrated sparingly probably with some of these snaps. I must get on with sorting it as it's happening on 22nd of Feb at an Lanntair. I have no idea what I shall actually be talking about !
On the Isle of Lewis off the west coast of mainland Scotland lies a croft inhabited by an English off-comer. His Mum and Dad live nearby and help him run the croft. This is a photographic record of their lives as it unfolds.
