Ok. I know I promised you something planty in my previous post but I thought I’d slip in this teeny-weeny post about my latest cover shot without you noticing, because if you can’t blow your own trumpet on your own blog, where can you?
The pic (of me) was taken by my sister after we spotted the cover mounted on the wall of Bloom, a wonderful restaurant in the KZN Midlands owned and run by Wendy Winthrop and her daughter, Sally Haigh. You may recall that Sally is the wife of Mick, who makes whimsical ceramics for smart shops around the world.
Despite the financial perils of media work during recession, and it being a fool’s gold at times, I enjoy what I do so much that after nearly ten years of it I still become ridiculously and rather embarrassingly giddy when I see things like this. The cover, which features Mick’s ceramics, belongs to the Midlands Meander 2009/2010 route map. Next to it is a photocopy of a piece I wrote earlier in the year for House and Garden.
