Artist's Description

In a recent trip to Jedburgh we visited Mary Queen of Scots house. There was a very pleasant historian in the gift shop with whom we chatted for at least half an hour. Our main topic was “who was buried next to Mary QoS in Westminster Abbey”. Anyway, photography was allowed as long as flash was not used. I don’t use the on-camera-flash because it creates the most unflattering light of all, very harsh and no modelling. If you’re lucky you’ll get a flat looking image of your subject but in general people will look their worst!

I looked around the exhibits but only found her death mask and these cannon balls of any real interest to me. I have this in colour too but I think B&W suits the subject much better, do you agree?

Since my kit is Canon, I deliberately misspelled the “Cannon” in Cannon Balls for the title.
