Love is in the air....

....everywhere you look around !

So has anything grabbed your eye so far?  Have you been tempted to splash out on something special for the love of your life? Ludlow Live discovered great displays around town... from the heart bunting and window displays at Tiger the array of options from pinnies to mugs at Emporo`s....and the (almost inevitable) red lingerie at Bodenham`s (ooh la la....!) But we LOVED the greeting for the whole of Ludlow painted on the front of the Oxfam shop (top left)...with a pout from Marilyn herself..and even a little red dress for that romantic dinner for two, maybe....

But how about something different this year? Ludlow Live braved the chilly wind whistling through the market for this week`s Friday Feature....and found Julia Sinclair; who could put your loved one`s name in the frame for Valentine`s Day.

Julia, along with partner Chris Owen, make up FotoScript; with their Names-in-Pictures and Words-in-Pictures. They have a whole library of photographs of simple, everyday objects in the buildings and nature around us...which resemble letters of the alphabet. Put them all together ....and the result, as Julia shows, might well be L.O.V.E.

Julia, once a hairdresser and jewellery maker; along with former sound man, now photographer Chris are still relatively new to Ludlow, having moved here from Cirencester and before that, Horsham in West Sussex. Their home is just moments away from the market square, making it reasonably easy to bring their work over, and set up their stall. `It`s a lovely place, laid back, with friendly people, ` says Julia. And on offer? Words or names featuring eleven or fewer letters, displayed in one of the most original ways you could think of. it safe and go for `love`. Or find out if the team have the name of the one you love in stock. And PS. They`re not averse to a challenge. `The most unusual name we`ve put together so far, ` says Julia...` has to be Zyzyx.`

Want to find out more about FotoScript and have a look at their work? Catch Julia and Chris at Ludlow Market, or give them a call on 07900 603024.
