The best way to find perfect scenes to photograph is to come out without your camera. I visited a friend this evening to cook pasta and drink cocktails (I will definitely be drinking sidecars again). When I'd arrived she'd just finished mopping the kitchen and told me not to go in, the floor was wet. Rather than suggest I get my shoes, she dried the floor… with a hairdryer. She leaned into the kitchen holding the doorpost, driving off the water to making a path to the cooker and the sink. It would have been a perfect photograph.
"Best thing is," she said, "The floor will be lovely and warm."
