I took these a while ago and then got sidetracked for some reason. Either Morag or Michael had suggested doing a kind of Millais' Ophelia type shot, but with books instead of flowers. However, I couldn't face drowning a whole batch of books and just did one, torn up, instead...

Botanics in B+W

I headed to the Botanics with the Holga, its prismatic filters and some B+W film the other day, having worked out en route that the Clyde Tunnel is the Great Mother-Pothole. This is the only explanation for the ridiculous numbers of smaller ones on the approach roads; either the smaller ones are emanating from it, or they're trying to make their way back, in the manner of B-movie aliens. The photo above is the pond in the Kibble Palace through a prism, however, and probably nothing to do with potholes.

The triangular mirrory thing further into the Botanics. It's getting less mirrory.

Double exposure with writing.

Prismatic puddle.

Cain - he was supposed to have fish superimposed on him, but it didn't really work.

Same problem with Eve. I think it might have been something to do with trying to use the polarising filter to cut out the reflections - it was a bit haphazard as it didn't fit into the filter holder and I couldn't see what effect it was having anyway...
