In the autumn in Newfoundland, you will see people off in fields, at the sides of roads, or on a hillside, picking berries. Cloud berries, partridge berries, blue berries…all of these are made into jam and preserves and remind me of Newfoundland. Milly Bragg was one such berry picker, and she posed for me on this hillside in the beautiful little village of Greenspond.
