Last week I was extremely lucky to be contacted by Jess from Hello Canvas - the UK's largest photo on canvas website.
They offered me the chance to send one of my favourite photographs that I thought would be difficult to reproduce onto a 50 x 70cm canvas.
Since leaving Spain I've always loved the idea of having my pictures 'in hand', so to speak. In a world of digital media it's easy to overlook the unique novelty of having the photos you take in a material form. So, as soon as I received the email - I knew exactly which one I would send. My favourite picture that only exists digitally.
Sevilla. My absolute favourite place on the Earth that I have ever visited, to date. I took this picture while family were out to visit me. It was a wonderful day; warm air, siesta time, peaceful... All the things I associate with Spain in general! To me, it is the perfect picture (maybe not technically, but for sentimental value) and I thought it would meet the brief of being challenging to print with all its different elements!
So fast forward three days after sending my image - the canvas arrives! Speedy or what? I was so excited to see the outcome, after having a quick look at Hello Canvas' site, I knew I would be impressed with the quality.
Actually, I was more than impressed. I was blown away! It's a fantastic size, the quality is incredible - you can literally see the peoples face on the bridge, the colours are identical to the original... In fact it may even look better than the digital one!
I honestly couldn't be happier with it. As my first canvas experience, I now want more!
Thank you Hello Canvas :)
