Capturing Raindrops with Petals and Berries


Anthotypes are the ground zero of Slow photography, yet despite long waits for results, the swift passage of time is brought sharply into focus. Flowers bloom and fade, sometimes within the space of just one day, every sunny hour is an opportunity not to be missed. Working with this beautiful process has honed my appreciation of the garden’s fleeting moments. These two Anthotypes capture rippled reflections on the pond at Painswick Rococo Garden, holding them for just a little longer, before they vanish forever.
