I called this blog Sawdust because the stuff I write about is intellectual sawdust from the sawmill that is my career in marketing communications.
I post here anecdotes and opinions that feel more at home on my own blog than that of my current employer.
However, until today, the header image had been a shot, taken from my kitchen, of the sun rising over Edinburgh.
A pretty shot, but little to do with Sawdust.
I don’t want to be “borrowing” somebody else’s photography for the main header image on my site so yesterday I briefed my eldest daughter to take some shots of me chainsawing dead (I repeat already dead) elm trees for firewood.
Molly is a keen photographer with, in my humble opinion, a good eye for composition. The brief was to take some shots that would afford some interesting imagery when cropped to the wide and shallow shape required by the blog theme.
I’m very pleased with the results.
