13 Feb DIPPING INTO THE ARCHIVES
For this edition of Dipping Into The Archives, I felt like warming up and remembering a few summer meals from previous years… and basking in the beautiful light of golden hour.
The first film is a glorious dinner from July 2013, cooked on the camp fire with salad from the campsite’s garden. The thread throughout the film is our hands… they are cooking or playing with the grass…. watching this back reminds me of how hot it was and how I adored the bleached long grass.
During the heatwave of June 2017, we went to Hampstead Heath three nights in a row!… to swim in the ponds and have dinner in the long grass. I didn’t film as much footage as I would’ve liked that evening, as we were enjoying the moment too much. But these little snippets are enough of a reminder of this time.
In July 2016, on the second to last evening of living in this house, we had a BBQ in the garden. Blessed with beautiful light and delicious food, it was a welcome relief from all the packing and a lovely way to say goodbye to this home.
Roll on this summer for more evening meals in the long grass…

Part of a series of where I will be dipping into the archives and sharing some of my favourite films and the WHY behind them… that could be why I shot them, why I edited that way or why the film means so much to me.
