sequential







There was something about Monday... an incredibly, unusually languid London day. Had planned to meet my friend Erinn at the V&A courtyard, and after a few hours chatting, I took off my shoes to wade & cool off and presumably, write, but instead, I just had the most extraordinary time, photographing. I can't explain: it was like everything was a photographic image. Cinematic.. filmic. This is just one series. I love what was going on in the background, compositionally. And the geometry of this girl's dress, and hair.

I think natural photography is beautiful - it shows people and their emotions as they truly are. It's able to capture the moment too. These photos are a kind of timeline - and I agree with you Jill, it's as much about what's going on in the background as well as the foreground xx

I'm really loving these too, particularly the 2nd one. The composition, the style, the water ...! Terrific captures!

Like screen stills from some dreamy art house movie. There could be such an unusual story going on here, underneath the serenity of the scene. Really gorgeous pictures Jill - you have an amazing eye for an interesting moment.

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog. I shall probably have some sandals stashed away in my bag in case of sunshine! x
