The salt marshes of North Norfolk provide an endless source of inspiration for the creative artist An atmosphere of quiet stillness is broken on by the occasional birdsong or, from time to time, a passing plane. The moods and colours can change dramatically, and quickly, depending on changing weather conditions.
This series comprises a collection of impressions evoked by the marshes. The longer the viewer can spend with each image the stronger will the sense of place become.
The driveway between two of the houses in High Street [see the previous post],seems to have become, over time, the designated graveyard for redundant equipment and other jetsam. It is a fascinating assortment that, no doubt, could tell many tales. I was tempted to break the scene up to focus on various item, but it has clearly not been disturbed in years – why bother now?
Well, perhaps, just one!
As mentioned in an earlier post, (https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2019/10/20/past-times/), there are strong echoes of past times in Blakeney. High Street is narrow and there are no pavements. It is bordered by sturdy but elegant, cobbled houses and properties, and (mostly) painted white. Shops and businesses are assimilated within the overall character of the street.
The pictures below were taken at lunchtime on the first Saturday in October. Blakeney is not a noisy place!
