Annie Spratt champions and fosters the Art of Making, she believes in creating. She talks about the culture of they have at Unsplash, giving us a sense of what it’s like to create and share your work: “On the first Friday of every month, we encourage everyone to share what they’ve been making and we call this Make Day. Writing, design, remixing, photography, hacking, illustrating, cooking, building. We like to think of it as a celebration of turning ideas into realities.”
"The New Forest is, for the most part, as it's name implies, a vast woodland region – a charming relic of the past life of a shopkeeping nation. There the wayfarer may wander a summer's day long, and actually lose himself in solitudes peopled only by charcoal-burners, gypsies and the beasts of the field; need hear no rattle of wheels nor screech of steam engine; may even forget for some happy hours that he is an Englishman of the latter end of the nineteenth century." Excerpt from The New Forest, R.C.DeCrespigny & Horace Hutchinson. 1895
Annie blogs at Mammasaurus and her photography project is going on strong.
