Pretty Magnolia By Norwich Cathedral
A calm and serene post after last week’s fun and frantic Revamp Restyle Reveal post! (In case you missed my attic makeover, see it here!)
Magnolia season is so special, because it is so fleeting. I must have taken hundreds of photos this year, and although I feel like I never quite captured it in it’s full glory, I do love these snaps. There is a beautiful tree at the back of Norwich Cathedral, and I love the petals against the stone architecture and stained glass windows. There’s something a bit fairytale about it, and as you all know, I love a good fairytale!
In other news, I am doing an online class with Annie Leibovitz on photography (not actually with the great lady herself unfortunately – as with all online courses now, they are pre recorded videos!) I have a burning desire to learn more, to try new things, and I really want to shoot more people. I find shooting people a real challenge, but it’s something I want to do a lot more of this year. They bring lot more challenges than my usual subjects – still life, flowers and interiors don’t move or have expressions! I’ve only just started the course but I’ll let you know how I get on.
I had a big shoot for a client in my garden this week, which saw me frantically scrubbing the decking (by hand! No power washer or outside tap!), clearing away signs of winter, and creating little areas to shoot in. It was a big deal for me, as I had my two clients come to the house for the shoot, and I wanted to create some magic for them. We had a brilliant, creative day, and now I have a lovely tidy garden and summerhouse in the process. The summerhouse has had a little re-jig, so I’ll share take some snaps to share with you as it looks really pretty.
You can see more magnolia photos from my 24 hours in Paris a year ago!
Have a wonderful Friday!
