Gregory Crewdson is a fascinating photographer, who has taken some of the most amazing photographs of small town America. His images are extremely elaborate and they remind me very much of the films of directors such as Albert Hitchcock and David Lynch. Continue reading Gregory Crewdson
An absolutely foul day. It rained all day today, and the wind was powerful. It was difficult to believe that it was June, it was more like a cold day in March. Continue reading 6th June 2017
Today I have another hospital visit. The hospital is in King’s Lynn, so I took the opportunity to do some shopping on the way. P. wanted some fabric to make a cuddly toy for her granddaughter, and I had to visit the bank to pay in some money for the parish magazine.
Whilst I was there I bought a picture frame to frame one of my photographs. Perhaps I can sell it at the next exhibition at Norfolk Creative Arts.
When I got to the hospital, I was seen fairly soon, and my dermatologist had three medical students in her room, to see my ‘condition’. I was told that I was quite a rarity as the dermatologist had told me to go back home and continue to use my ointment, and was more than a little surprised when my biopsy proved positive. She is still a bit sceptical and thinks that I might have had the operation for nothing but she has requested another biopsy, this time on my ear where I have another lesion. Having been thoroughly examined by everyone, I went home via another shop that I failed to get to before the appointment.

It’s a good job that we aren’t doing anything today as we often go out on Sundays in the summer, and that extra half and hour will make a difference. Continue reading 4th June 2017

P. was out all day today, so it was my task to do the shopping. She never left me with a shopping list so it was down to me to follow my nose. I hope that I got it right! Continue reading 3rd June 2017

Today we decided that we were tired after the visit from P’s son and granddaughter yesterday, so we got up late. Continue reading 1st June 2017
Today I spent the morning taking a photograph. I have had an idea for my final assignment, and I decided that as the weather was good it was a good time to try and take the photograph. Continue reading 31st May 2017
