Port Isaac

Yes, the Port Wen of Doc Martin fame, but it is good to see that this really gorgeous little place is neither overly touristy or cashing in on the television drama. A modest sign reads “Doc Martins house 3rd on the left” and that is it. :-)

The tiny harbour here is full of sea-pottery and glass, and we spent a long time collecting it because it became quite compulsive and we couldn’t stop. 

We had a scrumptious Cornish Pasty here, made by the Chough Bakery, and I was obviously so overcome with my particular lamb and mint variety that I completely forgot to pick up my camera from the bench on which we were sitting overlooking the harbour. As luck and a rather swift-on-his-feet-Matt would have it, it was still there, along with a perplexed looking traffic warden. “I hope it was worth it” she told him. I’d never have forgiven myself if I’d lost it!

Ces pots de lait sont en céramique. Je les trouve géniaux. Ils sont signés Hanne Rysgaard. J’en veux un. C’est obligé.

Sandra Juto a de multiples talents. On ne sait par où vous la présenter. Elle coud, tricote, dessine, prend des photos. Et c’est toujours beau. Son blog est une merveille : http://sandrajuto.blogspot.fr
Son appartement berlinois qu’elle partage avec son amoureux est un modèle de style chargé et dépouillé à la fois. C’est là qu’elle trafique. Elle fait ses choses. J’aime ce qu’elle aime. Ce qu’elle voit. La lumière qu’elle attrape. Les motifs qu’elle dessine ou qu’elle devine dans la photo qu’elle va prendre, les jeux de transparence, les illusions d’optique, la profondeur de champ qui accorde de l’importance à un détail et précipite dans le flou tout le reste. Je n’ai pas fini d’y revenir.

I looked at the photos and imediatly thought of Berlin! :-)
