Over the summer Charlie and Sadie participated in a community project called Claytown Greytown. The aim was to make a miniature version of the town Main Street out of clay. The project was run by our Village Art Shop with the help of local artists, Sam, Maggie and Janie.
Sadie and Charlie wanted to do our café Cuckoo,
On day two they sculptured people, animals and characters.
Day three, they painted their creations.
They then were displayed in the Village Town Centre as part of the Greytown Arts Festival.
Now that the arts festival is over they are currently displayed at the Village Art Shop until it's decided what to do with them next.......
I'm not one to make new year resolutions, but I am determined to take more photographs of the four of them together, more of Ian and the children and I will try get myself in there a bit more often too.
I love how all the children use the camera and I adore sorting through them. Out of hundreds of out of focus shots, photographs of bottoms and shot after shot of pages out of their favourite books, I always find a handful that are just beautiful moments in time. Hugo and the cat seem to be popular subjects. But they're all little glimpses of everyday life that sometimes I miss to see and shoot myself.
