As our little village faces yet another threat from a planning application, I have developed my own suggestion: To connect rural Wiltshire to the sea. Just imagine, Morris dancing in tavernas.
The wind is howling and snow is falling. Indoors, a quiet winter evening by the fire and some homemade biscuits for sustenance.
The festivals at this time of the year all have one thing in common: To celebrate the Winter Solstice and the shortest day of the year, to celebrate the end of the dark time and to welcome back the light. Happy Saturnalia!
The 1920s, the roaring twenties: Social and political change, riches and ruin, jazz and gin, and emancipated women with bobbed hair. For me, this photograph is very 1920s flapper and it is probably the only way to wear a lace scarf.
Something for a cold December day: Model Katie Green is wearing a black corset in this intimate portrait from our recent photo session.
How to choose a spot for a catnap and why it is important that your cat’s fur is a contrasting colour to your carpets.
I ‘found’ this gentleman in the midday heat of a Greek summer in 1984. It is not clear whether the old man is the householder or a passing vagrant. Looking at the photograph now, thirty years later, I think that this might be me in a few years’ time.
Whilst some hospitable institutions may display a menu on the door, this establishment lets you sample the kind of dress that you can expect on their staff.
I always thought that life was hard for a photographer with cats but never realised that it could be equally challenging for somebody trying to sell a wood-burning stove. Read what Kaspar did to make my visitor grow two shades paler.
What could be nicer to come home to than a cosily lit up sitting room with a handsome cat waiting for you?
Living in a multi-cat household brings its own challenges. How do you divide your attentions, for instance? After I had photographed Domino yesterday another resident made me feel bad that I had ignored her brothers Camillo and Kaspar on their birthday. I could see my callous shortcomings instantly.
On the realisation of our insignificance in the big scheme, the emotional needs of a green moth, Domino’s jealousy and where Narcissus lives these days.
