After the manic season of open houses, exhibitions and working on a couple of commissions, it left me shattered. Truth be told I felt like I had photographers block. So after putting my camera away (lasted a week)! I decided to return to photographing, but out of my love for it rather than working for an audience. These blackberries, echo how a versatile fruit can be found in such a thorny setting. When blackberry picking, you are careful, of thorns and staining and often can be foraged. I have a weakness for found things, for consideration and simplicity. This pin has fast become my mantra 'live less out of habit and more out of intent.'
