I took these macro photos at the National Museum of Scotland a few weeks ago… on my mobile phone! I shared them on Instagram, but forgot to share them here. Amazingly they were taken with a cheap piece of kit from Amazon (since discovering it’s usefulness\u00a0 and the quality of images it can help produce, […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\r\n \r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>

The usual snows have fallen in January. It’s been a good test for the studio, and specifically the thermal qualities of the structure and the load of snow on the roof.
