Scotland 2014.
At the beginning of Summer, I ventured to Scottish Highlands for a week. After living in Cornwall for the past five years, it was wonderful to see the hills/ mountains almost untamed. The place is breathtaking, and for me more magical than the picture postcard that is some Cornish landscapes. 
This cottage was my home for my stay. It was amusing to wake up to our garden being grazed by cows and their calfs. More and slightly unnerving was to wait in the car as the bull wandered down the drive, eyed me up and casually ran himself down the side of the Yaris. There is a steep drop the other way.. 
I plan to move here one day, if only for a while.

Jenny and Yulelog. Cornish Seal Sanctuary. 2013.
I spent Christmas Day morning with my dear friend Jenny, and co at the Seal Sanctuary in Gweek last year. It was a perfect opportunity for photos without visitors. I shot this on the Mamiya as part of my ongoing project on the Cornish community in Gweek.

I was lucky to be at Lizard Point when wild ponies had arrived to graze the land. These were across two visits. Unfortunately they have now gone again. 

Hello. It’s been a while. I haven’t updated this for some time. I haven’t been doing all that much photography wise, other than falling out of love with it. I am now taking a steady stroll back uphill and finding my feet again.

Somethings don’t change…

I’m still at uni. Living in Cornwall. Prefer film. And shooting (sometimes) in Gweek. Still photographing tons on the Lizard Peninsula. 

Somethings do change..

I have a dog. She is called Hollie (she arrived with that name, being 7, and I won’t change it). My 5d sensor is clean!! I’d better not use it.

Anyway, I took the Hasselblad out. I was surprised to find I could still focus it. I’ve done lots of scans, but they are all organised into groups. This was the smallest group, and thus a quick edit to kick start my adventure back into blogging.

It’s my neighbours. Enjoy. 

Coming soon, more Lizard Point.

As I said, some things don’t change…

This term I have been looking to expand my project on the community of Gweek. Over the past few months I have been overwhelmed by the amount of activity taking place in what first appears a small village in Cornwall. 

Rather than trying to document everything, I decided to focus in on one element, a community within a community that is the Holifield Farm Project, focusing primarily on the Day Care Centre, a facility for adults with learning difficulties and additional needs. 

These are some of the photographs taken from my first two visits. It has been so much fun, from tending to calfs and chickens, to art and crafts sessions, and participating in the running of the farm built on an ethos of sustainable development and renewable energy. 

You can see some photographs taken at the annual festival held at the farm in past posts from my visit in September last year.
