a voyage round my uncle

(viewed 1359 times)
Bookmark and Share
Last summer I met up with my uncle, whom I'd not seen for almost 15 years. We spent the day roaming our hometown together and he told me stories about how he used to be the "king" of Nothe Fort, and pointed out to me where members of my family, now long gone, had all lived round the harbour. It is certainly a day I will treasure for many years to come.

thanks Mara

I have various projects on the go that all involve storytelling of one kind or another. Some involve illustration, some photography and others pure graphics, which is why I am currently exploring style and effect in my photos. It's not to try and tart up a crap photo, more trying to give them a complementary storybook feel.

Beautiful pics and I love that there's a story, too. Would really like to see more of Moblog as a storytelling device and glad you are leading the charge.
