I love the way you have photographed those white Sweet Peas. They have a sighing quality about them.

Your photographs are like instant-Zen in the middle of the workaday world. Thank you. Here's a website that reminds me of you, called The Practice of Contemplative Photography. http://seeingfresh.com/galleries-index/andy-karr-and-michael-wood Enjoy!

Do you know why some colours are called acid? I know of, and have used, many different acids and they are all colourless or very pale indeed. I expect one of your books on colour/pigment history will have informed you. This is a genuine question by the way in case you suspect something ...

That's an interesting question, but I don't know the answer. I would look up Colour: Travels through the Paintbox by Victoria Finlay, but I lent my copy to a friend and have never got it back.

Thankyou, Ruth, and for the link to that lovely site.

Sighing - that's a lovely way to describe them!

Dark Puss

Boo! That's a real shame.
