The few shots I took of yew bark have convinced me that I have got to take more. This was shot on Fuji slide film, which fortunately caught the glimpse of deep red at the centre of the picture.
Now a little interesting background for the track chosen. In one episode of the BBC ‘Imagine’ series by Alan Yentob titled ‘Oliver Sacks: Tales Of Music And The Brain’, Alan has an MRI scan showing an intense response to a piece of Richard Strauss music. I’m not sure if this is the one from the program, but it is of the same ‘Four Last Songs’ used.
The reason for rather arrogantly putting such a grand piece of music to this shot is because, as I studied in further detail, yew bark had so much to reveal and genuinely a grand and elaborate history.
