  1. Lovely pictures! The one in the gallery features a painting by the enlightenment painter, Joseph Wright, entitled The Orrery. My mother used to be the curator of the Joseph Wright Gallery in Derby and many years ago I followed this painting with my mother on a grand tour of London, Paris and New York, as part of a Joseph Wright exhibition that she curated. How lovely, and apt, to see it featured in one of your lovely, thoughtful posts!

    • WOW, thank you Eleanor! I love Joseph Wright too! I would love to have your mother’s job. He was an amazing artist. I absolutely love his use of light. So happy that there are more people out there who appreciate him. You’ve made my day Eleanor!

      • That’s great that you know who he is as not many people do! Yes his use of light was amazing! It shows that the same rules apply for painting and photography – it’s all about the light! Eleanor x
