The Shape of Power – 20

Hi! Just a single image this week. My take on a ‘Shapes’ competition coming up at our local club.

BOWTRUCKLE – 49

Bowtruckle is, apparently, a character for the Fantastic Beasts film, book, comic  (?), I’m not sure which.

But this bendy little toy, seen in a local toy shop, looked like potential shoot material. So here she/he is –  in a studio constructed version of what Bowtruckle’s home looks like (in my imagination!!)

SEED POTATO – 31

I took the first images of this potato back in January ( Resting Seed Potato – 03 ), just after it sprouted ‘eyes’ and began to look a touch more interesting than just a plain spud. ( My apologies to the vegetable-lovers amongst you. )

Since then its sprouts, or shoots, have grown incredibly long! All this time the potato has been sitting in my garage with little TLC given to it – in fact, very little attention paid to it at all.

Recently however I noticed that it was collapsing in on itself, and it looked as though it was very much on its way out. So I took this final image before it was consigned to the food-waste recycling-box.
