These are some of my still life, or macro, photographs. In this type of work I'm inspired by an American photographer called Imogen Cunningham, best known for her botanical and nude photography, who died in 1976 at the grand old age of 93. I'd never put myself into anything approaching her category however.

These photographs are of what's known as heritage tomatoes, the fractal delight of Romanesco cauliflower, celery and small potatoes which had started to sprout. I thought they looked good enough to photograph, so here is a small selection, with some photographs presented in both black and white and colour. I've used slightly varying black and white treatments, and added antique-style edge framing to a couple.

Camera on tripod with a macro lens, fairly small aperture for depth of field, and long exposure times - into the seconds - and diffuse window light. Two or three different cameras represented. See what you think.
