When a couple of weeks ago I went to the Irish Museum of Modern Art to visit this exhibition, I was happy to see that Donald Urquhart’s artwork had not disappeared yet.

This work, whose title is Recurring Line: North/South, is made from a long line of snowdrops that, as winter ends, blooms in the meadow. Once a year nature redraws the line for a few weeks. If you miss it, you have to wait for another year.

While I was there, I took a leisurely walk in the museum’s formal gardens and spent few pleasurable hours in the company of an Earl Grey. Not the tea but the Lomography film.

I believe Earl Gray proved to be a very nice companion. I loved its contrasty results that seem to give a more vintage look to my images.

Don’t you think that this last photo on the right seems borrow from one of those horror films from the 1930s?

Camera: Canon EOS 300

    Urquhart’s work is beautiful, it reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy’s.

      I seem to remember I came across some of his works a few years ago while wandering in England. I’ll check my photo archive to see if there is something in there…
