framing suggestion:
Interior, farmhouse at Nelson's Farm, Ashbocking, Suffolk. The owner had been
desperately trying to get planning permission to restore the buildings on this once-important
farm in mid-Suffolk, but had been repeatedly turned down on (it seemed to me) spurious
grounds whilst the place fell down around him. Holes in the roof, storage barn torched in a
nasty local dispute, pond overgrown with weeds, outbuildings abandoned and wind-swept...
He graciously allowed me to photograph the interior of the now-uninhabitable farmhouse that
he'd inherited, untouched for many a year. It could almost be preserved as a snapshot of
Suffolk from 50 years ago. Passing the farm a few weeks ago, I noticed a new roof had
gone up, but also a 'For Sale' sign. This is the shot after I'd given the original an antique
tone in Perfect Photo Suite 7, plus a severe vignette to keep the eye focussed on the old
pram. I then gave it an additional 'Grunge vignette dark', also in PPS7, to make the place
look even more unloved. I'm not sure that I haven't actually overdone it with this last effect,
but it reflects the gritty squalour of the place as I found it.
