The ethereal world of Julia Margaret Cameron's photography is so sensitive and evocative I feel like I'm stepping through to another world whenever I take time to visit them.
Julia was gifted a camera by her daughter in 1868 as a remedy to loneliness, her children were grown and husband traveling on business. Julia was 48 years old when started taking photos and soon became entranced with photography turning her chicken coop into a dark room!
This piece is her Merlin, so delightfully atmospheric!
Don't you adore the chicken coop story? I love to read the magazine "Where Women Create" but I don't think anyone can top the coop!
