Tales from the City-The Little Lamp GIrl of London


The little lamp girl

I love mooching around. London has plenty of places to satisfy that craving. I saw this little lamp in a second-hand shop, and just could not resist taking a photograph of her.  I played around a bit and here is the result.  I always wonder about items like this, where did she come from, who owned her before, and who let her go and why? The shop owner had no idea and so she remains a mystery, but mystery or not,  I’ve named her– The Little Lamp Girl of London.

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Is that a photograph or a painting you did of the photograph? It’s very eye-catching.

    • Hi Crubin!

      Thanks! It’s actually an Iphone photo. I did some manipulations and there it is. I like the little girl lamp but don’t think I would buy it. So I hope she’s found a home!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
