Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

This ‘monument’ to a true companion lies about a mile from where I live. It is the most beautiful eulogy to a dog that I have ever read. I can say no more, because I cry every time I read this. Whatever you think of Lord Byron, he loved his dog.

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'

    1. I just think this is one of the most beautiful eulogies to a dog that was ever written. It makes me cry every single time I read it. It is literally about a mile from my house and whenever we walk our dog in the grounds of the Abbey, we always pass this memorial, whether we intend to or not. And every time, I stop to read it and cry while my husband walks away…he can’t even start reading this without welling up with tears, bless him!!!

    1. It’s just so beautiful isn’t it Karen? I choke every time I read it. Newstead Abbey is a lovely lovely place to have on my doorstep too, and to think that Lord Byron walked those same grounds is pretty magical as well!
