Wolf Blomfield 31st January 1929 – 19th April 2017


When he died just over a week ago, Wolf Blomfield had been my close and loyal friend for almost half a century. Jackie and I attended his funeral today at Golders Green Crematorium. Ian, accompanied by Becky, made the journey as easy as possible by driving us there and back.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.
