  • One of my favourite places in my flat to stand is in front of the living room window.

    Usually I just stand and look out in peace. There's something about vast expanses of greenery that is very calming.

    If I'm in the middle of an argument with the husband, I look out and pretend I'm somewhere else. And my anger dissipates almost magically.

    This day, last spring, I was lucky enough to capture the sight of the sun setting. I haven't been so lucky as to get a shot as good as this, since.
