A while back, I took some fisheye photos in in Lucknow. I have written a few posts about Lucknow, but this one is all about the snaps. The titles of the photographs come from real memories of my ancestral home but I also think they sound like they could be names of perfumes. (Smell and memory are, of course, closely linked, and recently I have been reading a lot about fragrance.) For example, ‘Happy in the Annexe’ refers to tenants who lived in the annexe whose son’s name is ‘Happy’ and ‘Home For Morris’ refers to my grandparents’ vintage Morris that sat in the garage.
