I really don't like liquorice or Aniseed so it seemed to me the best thing to do with these (inedible to me) confections was to try to recreate the little character used to advertise them - Bertie Bassett. I couldn't find a blue aniseed one for his hat so had to make do with pink!

In 'real-life' I work for the NHS, the rest of my time largely being taken up with photography and associated topics. I enjoy trying different things with photography and would rather take a dozen crap shots than miss that one 'million dollar image'.
