The Delicious Flavours Of Apulian Wines Capture The History Of Life And Death In The Region.

We had started the day meeting the little kids in Carpignano Serrano, Scuela de Infancia – Castriniano. With all their lives ahead of them, they were so sweet, all lined up in a row, waving their National Flag proudly as they sang Nursery Rhymes. I felt very privileged to be thought of as an ambassador. […]

Feeling Special in Specchia Gallone

Just 40km South of Lecce is the sleepy little village of Specchia Gallone. Slap bang in the centre can be found the Church of Sant’ Anna, whose architecture dates back to the 1300’s. Inside, the walls are covered in frescoes ‘Il Ciclo Pittorico’ (possibly 1600’s) depicting the Old Testament on the left of the altar […]

Loving Lecce – Life-long learning through cultural exchange and healthy food production

Rich aromas of baking bread drifted towards me as I meandered around the streets of Lecce last week. Just in the shadow of an old amphitheatre in Piazza San Oronzo was what could be described as a farmer’s market, thronging with visitors. It was intoxicating, the musical sound of the Italian language, the hues and […]

EBS “Riot Of Colour” Turns A Few Heads At RHS Hampton Court

With only 4 hours to visit the largest horticultural show in the UK, I was hard pushed to get round it all. Following the Edible Bus Stop’s crew through each stage of the build via Twitter and Facebook, I was determined to hit their installation first and wasn’t disappointed. It was a large plot replicating […]

Changing The World One Bus Stop At A Time

Last Saturday, I visited the Edible Bus Stop Community Allotment project in Stockwell’s Landor Road, London SW9. I had been following its progress with great interest on Facebook for some time, because my childhood friend Mak Gilchrist is one of its co-founders. Just over a year ago, Mak and three other Edithna Street residents, Will […]

Springing Into Action

Spring has sprung and what better way to spend Easter shooting Marcel’s beautiful small town garden? I met Marcel de Lannoy at Walton Open Gardens last  year. He is a gentle giant of a man with a soft, lilting Dutch accent. He’s bonkers about bulbs….all kinds. A feast – a kaleidoscope of colour:  intense, vibrant, […]

Ojén –More than Bitter Sweet

Juan, Mum’s neighbour and Gene Wilder look-alike with the bright blue eyes, lamented the election of a Basque politician at the beginning of May 2011. I had some sympathy. How do we assimilate extremist politics without it being at the expense of the moderate voter? “Spain is finished. We may as well move to America” […]

February Snow Drops at Welford Park

I first came across Welford Park in conversation with a Buddhist friend of mine. I’ve been into plant photography for ages and I mentioned that I wanted to shoot Snowdrops. She immediately suggested Welford Park so as soon as I could, I headed up there. At first I was taken aback by the amount of […]
