This was one of the portraits I took for my solo exhibition of portraits at old gala house in Galashiels four years ago. 📷 .
.
This is Yvonne, she was also my neighbour back in the borders. I pestered her continuously about portraits and spent a lot of time with her and her husband John. For her 90th birthday she wanted to have a hot air balloon ride, she would still chop all the wood for their fire, she was certainly someone who made me proud to know but also a real life lesson on just to get on with things. .
.
After the exhibition I gifted this photograph to both Yvonne and John - which they were thrilled with and they hung it in their bedroom. .
.
She sadly died recently and her funeral took place today. John insisted that, that was the photograph that was both on the program but also on show at the funeral. .
.
Photo projects are important but what was so fulfilling was spending time with Yvonne, with that cheeky sense of humour, amazing storytelling and their appreciation for the gift. .
