One last glance
Moving home is a time-consuming, stressful and unsettling experience. But it brings the excitement and promise of a new place to live.
I’ve just resettled after eight years in the same west London flat. I had to go through the final ritual of handing over the keys and signing it over for good. Letting myself in early, I took some shots and wallowed in the sadness that an empty – and recently vacated – property always has.
There was occasional sunlight thrown on the now bare walls. The main shot focuses on the place I sat to edit photos and write posts. The others include the only two interior shots I have from my life there – a memorable old bathroom window that diffused and projected light.
But that was then. The new pastures are being happily settled while the photography continues.
