Four More Chapters

This afternoon I posted

Later, after reading four more chapters of ‘Bleak House’, I scanned another set of Charles Keeping’s inimitable illustrations.

‘Mrs Bagnet proposes a departure’ contains three of the artist’s portraits.

‘Clattering over the stones at a dangerous pace’ presents Mr Keeping’s sense of movement;

his mastery of perspective is demonstrated by ‘We stopped at the corner of a little slimy turning’

One of the portraits in ‘ ‘Who will tell him?’ ‘ will be recognised from the first of this quartet of pictures.

Jackie produced her trademark chicken and vegetable stewp for our dinner this evening. None of us imbibed.

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. Yes, the illustrations are magnificent! I especially enjoyed “Clattering over the stones at a dangerous pace” because Keeping managed to capture the motion and speed on paper! Amazing talent!

  2. I thorough agree with your comments about your second scan today … “Clattering over the stones at a dangerous pace” presents Mr Keeping’s sense of movement; well done Derrick .

  3. Did you ever go to Charles Dickens museum in Camden, London? He only lived their a couple of years but it is extremely well presented and an enjoyable place to visit with a little café if you ever go to London.
