Back in the mists of time, when the world was young and I didn’t have wrinkles, I had the cheek to write a Gallery Post that didn’t include photos. The theme was ‘A Novel Idea’ and it was supposed to be photos inspired by a favourite book. The book I chose was ‘The Snail and the Whale’ and my general gist was that I was waiting to include the photos that we took on our trip.
We’ve been home a while now, and I’ve still not sorted through my photos. They’re sitting on a hard drive, and I’ve not even looked at half of them since I took them. So when I saw this week’s Gallery Prompt, Landscapes, I got a bit excited. Now is the time. I can’t pretend that I’ve done an exhaustive cataloguing process, but I’ve had a quick trawl and tried to come up with a few that could illustrate Julia Donaldson’s fabulous book.
