I've been collecting old glassware for some time. When I was in Paris I visited the Marche aux Puces, the famous French antique markets. Unfortunately I visited Paris in August when the whole city goes on vacation. Very few of the stallholders were at the markets but I managed to find one seller who specialised in old pharmaceutical glassware, letterpress and other ephemera. I bought a small apothecary jar in it's original wrapping paper and 2 small letter press letters in my initials - j and l. I had limited space in my camera bag but I managed to get the glassware back home safely.

For the photo shoot I decided to raid the garden and found some dandelions and assorted wild flowers that looked sufficiently delicate and ethereal. 

When I was going through the images I blew up the dandelion flowers and discovered that dandelions have the most amazing structure!
