Yellow is also the colour of my original mock cover for my manuscript and my final photographs is purely indulgence on my part. This little worm visited me at Jaspers, my breakfast bakery one morning. This gallery if you click on the first photo then click through quickly, as quickly as the scroller will allow and still give clarity, you too will have the pleasure of his movement.
