Bye bye my friend

This weekend was one of the saddest, as I had to say goodbye to another one of my friends, his name was Jigsaw and yes he was a horse. What can I say about him. He wasn't smart and challenged every road marking like it was a snake. He never understood the bit, and even when he wore a bitless bridle he still tried to spit the bit out. He jumped puddles just in case of crocodiles! He never ran anywhere, everything Jiggy did was at his pace.

But one thing Jiggy did have was a massive heart, he loved people and would follow us to the ends of the earth. Rebecca did so much work with him when he was young, but still he only understood following!! He was very talkative, we could stand on the lane and make a Winnie sound and he would always call back, before coming to greet you at the gate. he's had children on his bare back while he strolled around eating (which was another of his loves, yep Jiggy loved to eat at every opportunity), and he would move slowly so the child never fell off. He will be missed so much and we all hope he's reunited with his mum in horsey heaven.

Bye bye to our dear friend XXX

Some from summer 11

Here are a few shots taken over the summer, some amusing. The man in the deck chair was actually made of leather! The couple celebrate nude day in St Ives! His and her hats! not sure it worked. And finally I visited.......Nope not Abbey Road but Penzance.

Blast from the past

Today totally by chance I bumped into my old Primary school teacher Mr George Pascoe. He was an amazing teacher firm.......extremely firm but fair. I spent a few years trying my damndest to make his life hell!! He always won! He is now 88 years old and looking great. He hadn't seen me for a few years....since 1979 actually but he remembered me like it was yesterday regaling stories of my mis-spent youth. Amazing man with an amazing memory that helped shape who I am today.

Bye Bye Petal

Well last week saw a good pet of ours 'Petal' pass away. She was an ango-nubian goat. She had a club foot, was agriphobic but she was also loving and friendly. Over the last 9 years we became close friends and I even took her for walks, or actually she dragged me where she wanted to go.

Many thought she was actually JaJa Binks from StarWars.

Miss you girl x

Featured Artist Todd Hido

Ok new to this blog is my quarterly featured artist:

This time its the turn of Todd Hido, Todd Hido (b.1968, Kent, Ohio) is an American contemporary artist and photographer. He is Currently based in San Francisco, much of His work involves urban and suburban housing across the U.S., of which he produces large, highly detailed and luminous color photographs.Todd is a fantastic photographer. In particular my favourite shots of his homes at night, he manages to capture something magical in his images. They are all long exposures between 4-6 minutes and the area he photographs is usually quite foggy, which gives his images a very eiree look to them. But also there are questions in his images of who lives there, what are they doing?

"Hido's photographs reveal isolation and anonymity in contemporary suburbia. Eerily lit rooms and suddenly abandoned homes increase the effect of loneliness and loss."

I also Love his portraits:
