Fake Shawls, Cheap China and Details


The devil is in the detail, they say. But so often with images it is the very opposite, the detail is where the beauty, the unexpected, the entrancing resides. Last Sunday we went to a Victorian Christmas Fayre. It was mostly fake shawls and cheap china, but there was an old powered fairground ride with exquisitely painted panels. This woman looks straight at me, demanding to have her photograph taken.

  4. This shot left me wondering how long she posed for the artist. She looks a bit fed up, doesn't she

  5. Lovely face, and even though she does look a little fed up, she could easily grace my walls. Certainly not Continental

  9. She looks timeless, old-fashioned yet strangely modern.
