I took this series of pictures many years ago of Reggie Ingleheart. Reggie was the youngest of 10 children and lived on Merrymit Farm, Budock. He worked on his father’s farm and had a small market garden which he supplied various shops in Falmouth with fresh veg and flowers.
He kept a small roost of pigeons and doves which would always be circling our garden. The cotes were pretty dilapidated in his back garden and an old Morris Minor sat in the corner rotting away. One of my first projects was photographing the villagers of Budock Water and Reggie was one of my first targets I took some great shots of him feeding his doves which I may be able to find to include in a future post. These are a few images from a session I shot a few years later. This is just a scan from a contact sheet of pictures taken on my old Mamiya but I love his expression and the memories that come back of my childhood walking past Reggie’s house.
