‘In The Kitchen’
Late afternoon sun streams through net curtains and on to the black and white checkered vinyl tiles of this kitchen.
It’s a rudimentary kitchen, for sure, but one with great memories as it is in an old place we have spent over 20 years holidaying at in summer.

Kitchens can be utilitarian places, but they can be at the heart of our memories too.
‘R.I.P x 2’
