A Double Spread

Taking it easy today, I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2022/04/09/a-knights-tale-124-a-night-to-remember/ after lunch,

and then scanned four more of Charles Keeping’s superb illustrations to ‘Bleak House’.

The artist’s emotional breadth is displayed in ‘She drew his head down on her breast, and held it there’

‘ ‘I would rather be hanged in my own way,’ ‘

‘Mr Tulkinghorn shut up in his dark carriage, and Mr Bucket shut up in his’ makes use of a double spread.

‘Mademoiselle Hortense eyes him with a scowl upon her tight face’ is perfectly depicted.

Later, I watched the BBC live broadcast of the Women’s Six Nations rugby match between England and Wales.

This evening we finished the Red Chilli takeaway to which Jackie added some paneer of her own.

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.

  1. I watched a bit of rugby league then snoozed in front of the fire after my return home. Julia returned from a shopping expedition with chocolate brownies. In different ways we both sem to have had good afternoons. 🙂

  2. In the first of this set of Mr Keeping’s inimitable illustrations, I am impressed not only by the emotional depth, but also the composition which blends two characters into one unit, emphasizing the bond between them.
