iPhone photography: Chinese cherry blossom


I'm ready for spring, for the thick layer of snow and ice to melt. The light is returning, but this time of year can feel heavy going. It's been a tedious week with dentists appointments (and bills), a broken internet and phone connection and a variety of interruptions in the shape of workmen and packages.

It's the small things that light up my days.


  • Visiting the museum of Photography with my Mum
  • Twigs with Chinese cherry blossom
  • Freshly ground espresso beans
  • Bunches of daffodils
  • Anders Zorn's minimalist colour palette of Ivory Black, Titanium White, Yellow Ocre, and Cadmium Red Light (Vermillion).
