The River Cam II

Grantchester Meadows is one of my favourite places. Not necessarily the main part, full of chairs and tables, trees and people, but through the trees and beyond, to the river itself, sluggishly weaving past amongst the reeds and tall, waving grass. That’s the part I love. There’s a richness to the landscape here. In the distance, a manor house peeps through the trees and I feel a pang of envy. To live here, day in and day out, is a privilege I hope they appreciate.

I wander away from my family, to explore the view visually, moving around, looking for the most beautiful angles. I find them, recording them with camera clicks and memory flashes. I imprint the scene, my feelings, in my mind. The camera will record every little detail, but it won’t record my feelings or the atmosphere. They are the notes that I need to remember.
