Back at the tail end of a long dark winter I picked up my partners Pentax Optio. In my pyjamas I crept out into the dark morning, like a bear slumbering out of its’ cave after the rain, and was absorbed by colour and light. Last summer I had bought a jumbo bag of spring bulbs and there on that bleak morning were the forgotten treasures of freshly blooming crocus. It was these photographs that inspired me to start a project called ‘A Brave New World’ taking a photograph a day of nature and colour to keep me inspired. I hope they inspire you too.
