  • Hello From the Other Side

    I’ve been deliberating over starting a new blog for weeks. You see despite convincing myself otherwise, after 4 years of putting finger to keyboard, I’ve realised one thing: once a blogger, always a blogger.

    I took this photograph at the weekend and I love it. Not because I have a foot fetish you understand (on the contrary) but because it represents something very special to me. The girls to whom these feet belong, are my ‘Tribe’. Before you switch off at my use of the word ‘Tribe’ (let’s all agree that it is rather icky), these…
