On a gorgeous summers day in Watlington, back in 2016!
Watlington, Oxfordshire.B4009 road through Watlington.
I wonder how many have been re-painted? New door knockers? Some are maybe unchanged?
Watlington Doors and Windows.
In 2017, Friends of Watlington Library, hosted an exhibition of the photographs, 'Doors and Windows of Watlington'. Visitors to the exhibition excitedly looked to see if their own home was featured!!
In 2018 and 2019, again thanks to invitations by, Dr. Anna Tilley, Chair of (Friends of Watlington Library) F.O.W.L, I held two more exhibitions, 'Hong Kong Landscapes', and 'Close Up, Botanicals'. In March 2019 I was invited to hold a talk, 'The Art of Landscape Photography', a first for me, I've been a school teacher for many years, but this was my first photography talk, to adults. The event was extremely successful thanks to all the organisation by Anna and the, F.O.W.L, team. Also a huge thank you to, Ross Speirs, graphic artist and cartoonist, who designs many of the posters and flyers for Watlington Library events held by, F.O.W.L. I love the poster Ross designed for my event and really appreciate having a professional design.
Designed by, Ross Speirs.
Did you enter the competition? Will your photograph be one of the 12 finalists? I'm really looking forward to helping to judge the entries and choose the final 12 that will be published in the, Images of Watlington Calendar 2020. Thanks again to Anna for organising the competition and Ross for the poster. For more work by Ross go to: speirs.co.uk.
