In my second year at Glamorgan, now the University of South Wales I did a photography module. Never having studied photography before I wanted to learn how to take a good snapshot and at the very least be able to photograph my work well. We had a project called Plums. This was based on a famous poem by William Carlos Williams and is open to many interpretations.
This Is Just To Say
I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold

many students took this to mean death or suicide but I had a different view on the matter. Because the person in the singular tense had committed a crime and the poem talked about fruit I produced a photograph of fruit in a police line up looking guilty with parts from my grandsons Mr. Potato head on them.
