Pendeen - Chimneys

The second LO to go with 'Close Up.'

Pendeen - Close up

Photos taken by DH Chris. Just had to scrap them together like this as it shows what they're all about. A chance to use my BG grungy papers too and some double embossing on the UP with copper and verdigris embossing powders.

Winter 2007

Made the film cells using the BIA as it gives the perfect spacing. This was our garden in November during the freezing frosty mornings. Based on Pencil lines sketch 67.

London Underground

Chris and I love the tube and spend more time on there than in attractions when in London. Sad but true :D Well there's nothing to compare in Cornwall so for us it's an adventure.

W H Audens Funeral Blues

The poem goes like this:

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

W H Auden
