I finished Falling from Trees (that sounds a bit strange!) on Monday. Having completed documentation and scans, today is its big day - off to be framed at Wildgrass Studio.
It makes me feel as though I have really achieved something when it gets to this stage. Dave and Gillian Hunt who run the studio are both photographers, and they make it a really relaxed, laid-back experience. The studio is bright and airy with a warm atmosphere, and there is a lot of interesting work by them and other fascinating bits and pieces to look at. All this is very welcome, as I become inexplicably filled with trepidation at the prospect of something which has been so much a part of my life going out into the world on its own. Silly, I know, but after the discussion about how Falling from Trees is to be presented I can't help smoothing it down for the last time. From now on, it will be safely behind glass, only to be moved by experts if it has to be taken out.
