Lemons and Oranges

The Museum of Kent Life, Maidstone, 19th May - 27th June 2008

"When looking through the train window, moving through the Sicily countryside, I noticed the abundant lemons in the trees, hanging, saturated yellow, in the sun. As a stranger I asked for directions and pointed at a map. Many people tried to help but nobody knew of a bus stop, so a kind lady gave me a lift and an armful of oranges.

I was in Cefalu, a medieval town, between the Madonie Mountains and the sea - a place busy with scooters, steps, sand, stones, boats, fish and net-menders. I meandered narrow streets, with sketchbook and camera, soaking in all the sights. "
