The Mysterious Incident of the Bathtub in the Night
The wonderful bath-tub (pictured below) was the trickiest prop to get our hands on. Ros had sold it some time previously to a friend, but rang her to see if we could get a loan of it. The friend explained that she’d stuck it in the garden and filled it with Spring bulbs and they’d bedded down for the winter. “No matter”, says Ros, “we’ll carefully take them out and dig out the soil.” (last thing at night on a cold October evening). It was too heavy to manhandle and we unfortunately repeatedly set off our neighbour’s exterior front garden lighting every five minutes and it was interrupting their good night’s sleep. They were getting rather vexed that, for an hour or more, we patiently excavated the bath-tub ready for the next day’s shoot. Two days later we did restore all the bulbs in good order and return the tub and we can only hope that we didn’t wake them up too early or prejudice their growth. The things we do for our photoshoots.
