Stookie in the Landscape

 Originally, I never included this photo as part of my Tiree Schoolchildren Project but I kept coming back to this boy. I really wanted to get a decent photo of him and it annoyed me that I didn’t quite get what I was trying for (whatever that is…)

As we wandered round the windswept landscape on Tiree, we came across this stookie (plaster cast for those non-Scots out there). The possibilities of where this came from saw me invent many fantastical scenarios in my head. Maybe that’s why I didn’t get my ideal photo…..

Still, I quite like this boy with the “stookie in the landscape” and he is now part of the series, adding something to the experience and feel of Tiree.
