This beautiful place is Lacock in Wiltshire – we decided to make an impromptu visit on our way back from London last weekend as it’s only a small detour off the way home. As well as being the most gorgeous little village that’s almost stuck in a time warp (in a good way), it’s also the home of Lacock Abbey, which in turn is the home of THE lattice window. The photography pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot took what is accepted as the first photograph ever (that could be reproduced with a negative) in 1835 of that window as you can see in the pictures above… and there I am standing right next to it. Being a photography graduate, I’ve been there a few times over the years and it’s pretty special every time – always a bit of a “wow” moment to see it 🙂
So the weather is still chilly in Blighty; the poor sun is trying but the wind is giving it a run for its money. I had to layer up with sweatshirt, blazer and two scarves – I refuse to wear a woolly scarf at this time of year so made do with two cotton ones! Plus you can see how the wind wins the Battle of the Hairstyles. After a while you just have to give up trying to brush that bird’s nest for photos.
Hope you’re all having a FABULOUS weekend, and if you’ve got a long weekend like the UK, enjoy your extra day tomorrow, won’t you…?
