More recognition that was lost in my move back to London for my master’s. This little photo has a story. It was shortlisted for the wildlife photographer of the year exhibit at the natural history museum but didn’t make it into the show itself. There was a theme or category that year, it must have been 2018 or 19, and it had to do with the frailty of nature or life, I forget exactly now. I had entered this photo because it was taken in St Ives of a crow that had recently passed and had fallen on a tombstone being used as a paving stone as is often the case in English church yards. The fallen crow looks rather peaceful and serene and above his head on the top left you can make out the word ‘Life’ visible on the tombstone. ‘There is providence in the fall of a sparrow’ and all that. Well the photo was cut in subsequent rounds of judging but as the photo was taken in the church yard I needed to make the effort to obtain permission to use it in the first place. That led to a friendly series of emails with the vicar, Rev Nick Widdows, who not only gave me permission to use the photo but requested more. Long story short, now their website uses some of my photos. Sombre pic, lovely story.
