The title for Day 1 of Developing Your Eye is ‘Home’. Now, without wishing to sound poncey, I’ve always thought of ‘home’ as a state of mind rather than a place. I can form an attachment to any one particular place quite quickly, as long as I feel happy and relaxed there, and for this I need books, a notepad and some pencils – hence my choice of subject matter for this photograph.
(PS. I also think that pets are necessary to transform a place into a home, but this evening there was no way I could get the damn rabbit to sit still long enough to have his picture taken. Pencils, on the other hand, don’t move at all.)
