I went with my photographer friend, Laura Gale, who specialises in animal photography. She took some excellent photographs, including the one above of me ignorant to the slowly advancing cows, including the very large bull. Who said you should never take your eye off the subject when drawing? Laura was a bit more prepared for the muddy conditions than me in her red wellies compared to my trainers. It made me smile later on when I went to find her in the sheep field. I arrived just to see a large flock of sheep come fleeing down the hill, swiftly followed by Laura in those red wellies with camera in one hand and large portable flash in the other. ‘I don’t think they like me’ she said. Here are some of Laura's photo's. I think they're great. They really capture life on Liz's family farm.
Chadwich Manor Farm is also the home to Liz’s ceramic studio and gallery. She is an excellent and very experienced ceramicist, and you can watch Liz at work as you browse the gallery. It’s a great set-up in this wonderful location. Here’s a link to Liz’s website:
I’m off to Twycross Zoo with Laura this week. I’ll keep you posted.
