Instant Life Photography

Life

It’s always reassuring after a dark and gloomy winter to see those little signs of life – buds and shoots and catkins – you know things are going to change, and soon.

Then you turn a corner and see a massive tree full of the most amazing Barbie-pink magnolias – glowing like a beacon. You realise we’re on a new page now. Hello, Spring!

In a world where life can change in an instant (often in crazily unfair ways) it’s good to have the clockwork of mother nature to keep us moving forward – turning the pages, not closing the book.
