I thought I’d share a couple of things that have turned up this week.
I’m doing a photography course at the Victoria and Albert Museum and during the last, extremely brain-hurting, session, we were recommended to look at the fabulous flower photography of Ron van Dongen. I was totally blown away. If you love his work, there’s also a great Christmas present of his work in this book, for you or perhaps for one of your friends. (My friends: look away now…)
I think I’d heard of the book before, when the whole tulip fever revival thing hit a couple of years ago, but there was such a mass of things on the same theme, that I just didn’t take it in fully – or perhaps I wasn’t as interested.
And for those who are of my ilk, in other words, who spend a lot of time in the countryside in the company of spiders, you could do worse than check out a wordalicious (can’t believe I wrote that) new blog I’ve found called A Girl Called Tom. Her words paint pretty good pictures to my mind or perhaps that should be “in my mind”.
Have a good week!
