So Im telling you here first about an Instagram challenge Im setting of my own, called #farfromthemaddingcrowd.
I read this book in the 1970s as it was on the curriculum at school for English O Level (gcse). The books of Thomas Hardy had a big impression on me at age 14, I thought they were very tragic and they still leave me with a haunted feeling.
This books title reminds me of my new life now in the countryside, getting away from the crowd in London. But the idea and concept of being having some personal space, some moments of stillness and an escape corner of your house, can be beautifully captured in photos.
So Im challenging over the next month for people to hashtag #farfromthemaddingcrowd and the entry I like the best will win a vintage copy of the book from me.
Here are some of my favourite stills from the last few weeks ...
