Your print arrived this morning by registered post, immaculately packed and perfect in every way. Framed, it will hang in my study and will always be in sight.
The puzzle and questions that you pose in the composition are intruiging; the spiders web near the top of the stairs, the torn poster with writing viewed from the back; the cat food in the cupboard and the bin liner tossed dowmthe stairs with its attendant marks in the dust. How on earth did you resist the temptation to go in? If it were me I would have taken a deep breath.......... and probably walked away. Things there are best left undisturbed. Thank you for your creativity. If you ever need a bass player........
Jane, browsing through your gallery as I do on a regular basis I have seen your latest Cover "The Leaf". What an excellent piece and highly professional as always. A happy christmas to you and yours. Peter Baldam
THANKS PETER, A HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO. IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO SEE YOUR HAPPY FRIENDLY FACE AT COURT!!
*your work just gets better all the time
*I can see exactly why you won the Chairman's Challenge
*already I am missing the direct inspiration, however your work travels well over the water and remains the real source of influence on my thinking and approaches to photography and image creation
*when you come over in the spring do you think we might eventually get this day of photography finally planned and sorted?
*miss the chats. Take care.
A photo/poetry book.
There is little doubt in my mind
That these are the greatest photos you'll find,
And I think now I've had a good look
That together we should make a book, Jane
Why didn't I think of that Bill?!
Book will be ready early in the new year, just can't keep up with your poetry, I need to do some to fit your poems so it's not you doing all of the hard work. (tried to do a poem back but as you know I'm better at pics than words)xxxx Jane
Nice to see you still have an intrest in photography.
Yes, Im totally obsessed!!
Rigg Beck House
What exqusite photograpy. I would like to order a copy of the interior shot and wondered if you had any more. I have never visited the house but have become fascinated by the family that lived there, there are many legends and stories about the Vergauwens.
Hi Ian, thanks for the compliment and interest. I've tried to e-mail you at your home but the messages have been returned. I sent one to the school so hopefully you'll get it eventually, regards, Jane
St John's Hospital
you have some interesting pictures there of the old hospital. It seems a shame that a fine building has come to this. It had a friendly atmosphere when I worked there as a Nursing Assistant on one of the wards several years ago and can still remember the good times which were had by all.Including being invited to the Drs Ball.
Where did you get the coloured glass?
(It was in the house when we bought it!!)
New project - St Johns
These are really good Jane.
Whats even more spooky is I remember them with patients in !
The images of the Childrens ward are excellent. Its also fascinating to see how your site is developing. Keep it up !
You have some fantastic new shots from your St.Johns gallery.
I particularly like "Derelict Corridor" , "Falling Apart" , "Gone" , and the one with the door on the floor with the light shining on it.
(Thanks marisa, I look at your site regularly, great to keep in touch, hope you get inspired soon!! :-) Jane)
I have been looking forward to visiting your site for ages.....I was not at all disappointed. Some people can capture the world and portray it to others so that they sit up and take notice. You are one of those people, very talented and sensitive.
A photographer with an excellent eye for detail
Jane, I have now reviewed your portfolio of photographs many times and find them so interesting and imaginative. Congratulations on having such a flair in this field.
I think that your photos are brilliant. So varied, but all with a definite sense of your own vision. Wonderful!
(Thank you lovely one! for being my supportive critic and my inspiration xx Jane)
