Life and Death
Talking of journey's ends. I have just received a new commission for portraits in a place; a local funeral directors are in need of some portraits and some "interview" shots which could also lead to some further work. I find the prospect quite amusing in an ironical way, here I am on People and Place and I get asked to take some pictures of people at a place where most people only go to once, and then don't get to see it in any case. The portraits I have been asked to take are of course the people who work there and it is for the business, though there are a lot of thoughts going through my mind about my next assignment - "A sense of a place" about whether it could fit in in some way. Things to think about.
The memorial stones are for Alice Marshall and her father the Rev.d Jenner Marshall. These pictures were taken at Westcote Parish Church of St Edwards the Confessor, the closest church to the Alice Marshall Hall and opposite to the old Rectory (now worth a couple of million at least and sold off a generation ago).
