What is England - Rural

Monday, 7 February 2011


The What is England project that I have been involved with is now all finished! I can't believe it has been a year since we started this. There are some really great photos on the website, this is my last image for the project. The theme was Rural, so this was taken in the fields near to my Mums house which is always a great place to go to take photos. There are loads of photo opportunities and overgrown-ness (which if you know me then you know I have a fondness for a wasteland or 2 - not saying you live in near a wasteland Mum!) Anyway, moving swiftly on. I think that the whole project was a success and I am feel really pleased and privilidged to be a part of it so thank you to Stuart Pilkington for organising it all.

As usual there are loads of great shots, some of my favourites this time are:
Derbyshire - Andy Greaves this one reminds me of going to the cattle market near my Nanas house when I was little and wanting to buy a lamb, it was only 50p but I wasn't aloud! I know, outrageous. I still havn't gotten over it!
Lincolnshire - David Ryle
West Midlands - Jonathan Cherry
Hertfordshire - James Ball
Avon - Christina Fallara, and
Somerset - James Kergozou

There are loads of other really great photos on the website so why not go over there now to check it out.

I couldn't decide between the shot above or this one below, so I sent them both and then Stuart decided! What do you think?

I love that there is a site dedicated to england photos, that's a really good idea!

We will be traveling this year to the UK (Wales). And the photos of England are a great inspiration for us. Thank you.

The first one if my personal favourite - although the second gives you a feeling of people interacting with rural, which is nice and perhaps a little less obvious. But then the first picture is so pretty!
