Growing, looking in and how it was done.

1. On my desk, the tray of sprouting cress has put out root hairs. By home time, the leaves are turning green.

2. One of the boards has been pulled off and we are mad with curiosity. We peer in. Drifts of shattered glass bounce light around the room. Silver air con ducts hang from the ceiling like discarded pupae.

3. I like watching documentaries about the making of nature documentaries. I like hearing how the cameraman got involved with the story, and the lengths to which he had to go to get his footage.
