Musings on art and life.

(Still) Looking West

As I finished the post on Carne Griffiths I reached up to close the curtain behind my laptop, and stopped, then changed my mind. On the 18th November 2012 I posted “Looking West“, in this post I discussed the romantic notions I entertain when I gaze out of my window towards the sunset. These days I’m lucky if I get to see the sun set at all, it’s dark by the time I have my lunch break at work.

When I caught a glimpse of what was happening in the sky, I instantly reached for my camera, and started day dreaming about those planes, again. Sadly, I still haven’t had a chance to begin work on that embroidery series. I have got some pretty decent new t-shirt transfers as well as an amazing new collection of thread, gifted to me by a lovely neighbour who’s mother can no longer use them. (They really are amazing- boxed and organised by colour, with individual labels from the original rolls they came from..) These images will on my list of future embroidery projects, and maybe even a kindle or iPad cover.

Anyway, I did want to share these quite lovely images of what I witnessed today. It really did make me smile to think of all those people on those airborne sardine cans. One day soon, I’ll be looking down from up there. (from a plane, not in any morbid way…)
