Ladies with Brains?

Ladies with Brains?

A great turnout for the much awaited Telephone Treasure Trail. It was a windy and rainy night yet it didn't stop the brains of Taunton coming out! What a great evening and what a shame we now have to wait for another year until the next one! 

Well done girls!

The Hours photoshoot

Sheffield (Fulwood) NWR group give a modern interpretation of Edward Burne-Jones Pre-Raphaelite painting “The Hours”.

 

 'The Hours' offers an allegorical interpretation of the times of the day through the depiction of six female figures.

We updated the background, activities and dress but kept to the colour scheme, themes and solemnity (mostly)!

 

From left to right, the seated figures symbolise Waking, Dressing, Working, Feasting, Playing, and Sleeping.
