Vintage is so fashionable in photography, is it because we hanker after a bygone time when the world seemed a simpler place? I’ve collected the odd vintage item for my photography ‘prop box’ and also have a lot of my Mum’s bits and bobs, her photo albums and china cups, tea sets and ornaments. She had some beautiful pieces, and it’s nice to remember her through them. My mum is the little scowling girl, and then as a young lady on a motorbike, and that’s her Mum next to those 2 photo’s. The cup is beautiful, when you hold it up to the light you can see right through it. Tea tastes lovely in it.
