A Week Seen Through My Lens

A Week Seen Through My Lens—Lucy Holmes

Read Time: 1 minute

Each week is not planned nor defined. I observe and then design…

A visual blog by Lucy Holmes

Leaving my apartment (the Richard Rogers building Montevetro "mountain of glass") and heading out to a meeting, I spotted the rainbow of light from a floor spot on the internal concrete walkway. The yellow rim surrounding the light but the incredible distinction of the rainbow on the grey speckled floor. 

As I exited the overground train in the East of London—I often take pictures of my shoes as I made a decision not to drive in London seven years ago—I walk miles most days, and this time noticed the step detail that reminded me of my piano. (During this transition I am learning to play the piano.)

Later that day I was with Alan Kitching;we are working on a book together. I was cutting out a book jacket we had made that day and noticed that the cutting mat, ruler and pencil were rather like the concrete rainbow I had seen that morning.

When I brought them together the greys, yellows, light and angles seemed to be so similar. This picture will always remind me of my day, from meeting someone new and a meeting I was nervous about, to tea and letterpress with a wonderful old friend, and finally, the challenge of learning to play the piano.
