Tony says:
‘When I put my new frying pan on the work surface, the light through the wooden venetian blind gave the dimples on the base some attractive brown and white stripes. Before I spoilt the pan by cooking with it, I grabbed the camera and snatched a few handheld shots. I concentrated on the centre of the pan because the circular finish gave the best looking pattern. After taking numerous pictures of the pan, I felt this off-centre position was the most pleasing. The image is of a 32mm by 48mm section and each hexagon is 3.5mm across. Incidentally, the pan fries really well!’
