Another post today. Firstly any tips on how often to post? I know could just google that but I was hoping for some comments on the subject (hint hint). I have read a lot of contradicting information, some people say daily, twice a week, weekly, some say daily is too often etc.
So today I went to Dimbola Lodge in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight, which is the home of Julia Margaret Cameron, a women who made a breakthrough in early glass plate photography and who was friends with Darwin, Tennyson and Lewis Carroll. She even had a special gate built in her garden wall so Tennyson could drop by across the field from his house without being bothered by servants and the public.
I was especially pleased to see the Annie Leibovitz exhibition: Pilgrimage. A documentary of her travels to visit houses and frequented haunts of famous figures in the history of art, photography and science. The picture that moved me most was of a tunnel of trees in autumn, the ground covered with copper leaves, entitled, ‘The path at Sandlot where Darwin walked every day’.
Worth going to see, it only costs £5 entry into the house which includes the exhibit. It is on till the 12th of July this year.
Then we had lunch in the cafe and played giant chess on the table! I won the first game and my Mum won the second. Not bad as I haven’t played properly in years.
