“Nothing here,” he said. His small hands lifted the stone. He was looking for crabs. His mother insisted they were there, hiding under the rocks. She stood behind him, her arms folded across her stomach. The wind blew her dark hair so that when he looked at her, he knew she must have been a mermaid.
Hey, here’s a flash I wrote over at Commas & Colons. The photos taken by the lovely and talented Rachel Richards are absolutely perfect, and I potentially like them more than what I wrote.
How very kind of you say!
Check out my images with the lovely story by Alvin Park over at Commas & Colons.
These last few weeks it has been great reshooting the online catalogue for Tails and the Unexpected. Based in Penarth, Tails and the Unexpected is a quirky little family run online boutique which sells all sorts of grand and great goodies such as top hats, smoking jackets, fedora hats and a surprising amount of knives!
Based at the end of the garden, their office is like something out of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ with precarious towers upon precarious towers of Christys’ hat boxes reaching up to the rails of colourful waistcoats which hang above your head.
It has been great to be involved in the process of actually organising and uploading the files to their current website (and soon to be brand-new-not-yet-revealed website), meaning that I get to see my work online almost as soon as I have shot it.
Also I get to learn lots of little fact such as, did you know that panama hats can cost over £2,000 if you get one that is so finely weaved together, the straw is almost as thin as a cotton thread? Well you do now…
