Lots to post today!
I’ve had two roles of slide film to scan in, all from beautiful Kingley Vale near where I used to live. It’s part dark, thriving yew forest and misty hills topped with burial mounds.
As a devotee of Antony & the Johnsons, it could seem strange that I haven’t done an entry with him before now. The simple and embarrassing fact is that I get choked up when I listen to him, and therefore have to choose my moments wisely.
Setting this particular track (‘What Can I Do?’) to the image of tiny white berries against a blackened DOF was an ideal combination for me. This will sound incredibly corny, but it evokes light and hope rising out of darkness and despair.
Aw, I’m always corny.
