The Coastal Path Gets Printed!

In December 2013 I was thrilled to have one of my photographs published in National Geographic.  Now, having been published, The Coastal Path has also been printed!

In April 2013 we took a trip to Paris, where we spent half a day in the Louvre.  During the Louvre trip there were times when instead of gazing horizontally at works of art I found myself gazing vertically, admiring the ceilings.  This may sound a little strange, but these ceilings really were quite spectacular:

I published this photo on my blog and thought nothing more of it.  Then, a couple of months ago, I received some emails from two very friendly people from Denmark, called Martin and Jonas.  They were wondering if they could use this photo for a “project” they were working on.  I asked for a few more details; it turned out they were designing a t-shirt for a Danish fashion label called Galaci.  Never one to turn down the opportunity of becoming a fashion designer in addition to a National Geographic photojournalist, my consent was readily given.  Martin and Jonas worked their magic with the picture, incorporating a mirroring technique, and here is the design:

With the design finished, Jonas then got production going, and on 7 March 2014 the “Baroque Tee” was launched on the Galaci website, retailing for €39.00.

If you happen to see two people on the south coast of England wearing matching t-shirts and walking boots, and if you then you see two pre-teenage children running behind also wearing the same t-shirts, shout!  That will be us!

    As I am in Denmark once a month (my daughter lives there, as did I for 14 years) I’ll keep an eye out – very striking images.

  5. Double celebrity! Fantastic! I want one of those T-shirts – but only to wear in the dark, I think, at my age… RH
