Nursery Rhymes and Pantomimes16/11/2012 - 10:31 AM
I took this picture recently when I went to the fairy tale castle at Warwick. It is actually in a large conservatory type building that I presume was for growing exotic fruit - perhaps grapes.
Spotting the trail of leaves growing up the wall I thought of the Pantomime, "Jack and the Beanstalk" - hence the title " not again jack" for the image.
It struck me that this could be the start of a whole new project, and one that I have never seen elsewhere - taking photos that represent nursery rhymes and pantomimes. They would not need to be obvious - indeed some come be quite cryptic and make viewers have to think. Even with this shot I could have treated it differently and still given the same title. The next image is about as far away from my usual style ( if such a thing exists ) as you could imagine, yet it still could be related to jack and the Beanstalk.
Think of the possibilities. Could you come up with images for Little jack Horner, Jack and Jill ( Why so many "Jacks' in nursery rhymes ??? ) Mary Mary, quite contrary, etc. This could be the idea to launch a thousand photo challenges
