Aprons in the Window

photograph chosen for the Home and Away issue of Understorey Magazine
I took this image a few years ago while we were eating at a very small restaurant that does fabulous home cooked breakfasts and lunches. Nothing fancy or trendy. Just good meals that you have to be patient and wait for. It's a tiny restaurant, with just a few tables but has lots and lots of eye candy that you can enjoy while waiting....old tins and teapots and signs and such. And aprons hanging in the window.

This image was recently published in the "Home and Away" issue of Understorey Magazine.


Understorey launched in November 2013 as a project of the Second Story Women’s Centre in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. In 2016, Understorey formed a new partnership with the Alexa McDonough Institute for Women, Gender and Social Justice (AMI) at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax.

According to their website:
Understorey Magazine publishes literary writing and visual art by and about Canadian women.

Our vision is to sustain a relevant, accessible, diverse and aesthetically beautiful venue that supports and empowers women through self-expression. To achieve this vision we:

  • Publish compelling, original stories and art by Canadian writers and artists who self-identify as women.
  • Inspire, encourage and mentor new and emerging writers and artists.
  • Support and promote established writers and artists.
  • Seek out underrepresented stories and voices.
  • Maintain a broadly feminist perspective that is welcoming, inclusive and empowering

I feel quite honoured to have one of my photographs chosen to appear in this publication.

Wonderful image Sara. Congratulations !

Reading through the group's mission statement I was sorta expecting the last line to be ... "and to boldly go where no woman has gone before". ;-)
