Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who left a comment on the last post, or who wrote to me personally. I’ve now got lots of food for thought! We are (fanfare!) in the final stages of producing the Inspired by Islay book (which will go to the printer this week) and I am now looking forward to some really focused reading and writing time over the coming months.


This image is a composite of nine photographs which Tom took of the same daffodil over 9 days, in exactly the same position and lighting conditions. I like the latter stages of fading particularly, but am concerned that the next experiment may involve a banana, which does not decay quite so pleasantly.
