Variation on a Theme
Flowers and Vintage Books...
Yesterday I went a bit mad with the camera and took 500
shots of a few flowers from my neighbour's garden (none in mine at the moment sadly...).
Rather than go mad and post them in one go,I'll split
them into different themes and posts.
I gave myself 2 hours and based the shots on flowers with
a stack of vintage books and postcards.
The postcard on view in these shots is one of my
favourites because of the beautiful script.
The other cards in the pile are gifts from
Private Quine of Shepherd's Bush, London, to his
wife and daughters Win and Doll.
They were all written from his his 7th London Regiment,
no 15 camp, le Havre in 1916.
When I actually turned them over and read this,
I found it very moving and touching. I wonder if he ever made it home to Win and Doll....
This little post is dedicated to the memory of them...
