25th October 2011
It’s been all work and no play for me over the last few weeks. I’m not complaining, as it’s a good sort of busy stuffing envelopes with the Evocative Cornwall calendars, diaries, cards etc thanks to a fantastic response to my autumn mailout – long may it continue! I have also spent a number of days selling my wares at various Art/Craft shows including the recent Falmouth Oyster Festival – it’s a great festival with a lovely atmosphere, many thousands of oysters are eaten and much champagne drunk – but personally I still don’t understand what on earth the oyster thing is about, an endurance rather than a pleasure in my opinion! My next show is the Trereife Christmas Gift Fair from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th November www.trereifepark.co.uk
The downside of all this activity is no time for getting out there and taking photos – a great shame as the light is so special at this time of year. Travelling to the shows has given me a few very early mornings with some quite beautiful dawns, but no time to stop and photograph, very frustrating, but a reminder to get up and out early when I have time – perhaps tomorrow, mmmm…..
Meanwhile here is a photo I took in September of a cottage on the edge of the cliffs near Zennor with the waves from the tail end of hurricane Katia crashing past.
