23 Oct Moonlight from The Red House

Stolen Glimpses by Christina Wilson

We think one of the most inspiring views from The Red House Apartment is contained in a beautiful new photography compendium from our friend, and Cornwall enthusiast, photographer Christina Wilson: A nighttime view east across the Camel with an coruscating vermillion moon rising above Cant Hill at the point where the river turns to follow the Camel Trail to Wadebridge. It’s a lovely image by a photographer who has spent many happy times with us here in Padstow. There other photographs of the Iron Bridge and Booby’s Bay. Stolen Glimpses chronicles Christina’s travels with her husband, writer and broadcaster Robert Elms,  who wrote the accompanying text. Launched at London’s Society Club, in Soho, the book includes haunting and romantic  images from as far afield as Havana, Cuba, Jamaica, Buenos Aires, Venice, Andalusia in the deep bleached south west of Spain – and of course Cornwall. “I think of all all the prints here,” said Christina at the launch party for Stolen Glimpses, “that one of the Camel from the Red House is my favourite.” We agree. The world is a very lovely place through Christina’s lens.
