As a child I spent a lot of time peering into ponds, or lying in long grass watching the tiny creatures bustling through their jungle. I was reminded of this when I took some dead flowers from a vase and found my attention snared by the beauty of the pebbles and marbles they’d been resting on.
I invite you to create your own underwater world. Fill a glass, vase or jar from the tap, then add in a handful of miscellaneous objects – such as shells, cracker charms, buttons or toys. You can have some fun searching for these in the street.
Then take a photo of the scene, or simply spend some time gazing at in, using your imagination to change the scale to create a whole world. And just see what rises to the surface…
