|ALLEZ! by Yann Faucher|
He asked if he could come down to our house and stay overnight, which he did, and then take some photographs along the way. He had an image very similar to this on his website and l thought it was so good that I wanted to repeat it. Often, it can devalue a project such as mine to repeat a photograph but I think this sufficiently different to warrant it being chosen to represent Yann on my project.
It is taken in our third reception room at home (known for historical reasons as the Playroom). I feel that it is almost as amusing that I hoped it would be and it has the message imbedded in it - go for it! It is your last and only chance! It also says something about my condition - inside
I am pedalling away but outside I am not quite making the progress I used to. When my mother moved us from North London to West Wittering in May 1964, she bought each of us a brand new bike. Mine was dark green and I cycled everywhere often making up imaginary bike races to which I added my own commentary - it was usually me who won, of course.
