Hi Sarah, Back in the US I have caught up with the blogs I missed. LOVELY and insightful - loved the one about the book sculptures. I am struck by the vast difference between the open veld of Africa - that I fixated on as I drove through part of Gauteng for the airport and back to the US - and the English spring you portray in your photos. Open, and brown, and flat, with clumps of bushes and trees, with the ability to look over vast distances as if a film has been removed from one's eyes, allowing them to seek far, far horizons. I enjoy the photos of lush of England and my current views of the Montclair spring, but I long for the open veld of Africa.
