One Photographer in the garden

Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is brought to us by her guest blogger Lisa Dorenfest who is currently living in Sydney, Australia. Not for much longer it seems. Her challenge is One.


Taken today in Trengwainton Gardens, Madron, Cornwall.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Wonderful on so many levels Jude. I love the contrasts created within the foliage and your garden photographer harkens back to a time long past. Magnificent!

    1. Thank you Lisa – glad you find it worthy of your challenge. I must admit it took some thinking about, but when I saw this I felt it was just right.

  2. This photo could have been taken a century ago couldn’t it? A nice shot and today promises to be even warmer and sunnier, enjoy 🙂

    1. Just managed to catch him in mid stride and the black and white conversion always makes photos look timeless to me. High cloud and breezy here at the moment, but it might improve 🙂

    1. We only nipped in for a quick stroll after doing some chores, the shape of this tree in white blossom is really nice.

  3. The shape of his hat and his pose makes me think it was taken quite a few decades ago 🙂 Beautiful photo, Jude. Thank you for joining in.

  4. What a great shot. Beautiful garden and that man adds great feeling to it. And I agree with Lucid a Gypsy – it definitely has a vintage feel too.

  5. Like all the others, I get the vintage feel from this shot. If had been holding an old camera, it could have been taken before WW2.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Thanks Pete. The hat helps with this image I think. Should have given him my camera to hold. But then I couldn’t have taken the shot.
