Some months ago, in fact towards the end of last year I was contacted by a lady who was jointly producing a book on Georgian garden buildings. She had alighted on an image of mine of the Triumphal Arch at Parlington, being one of many I had posted on Flickr. Initially I was sceptical, having had numerous requests for photographs, but after contact by email, it seemed that a genuine request was indeed the case. I was slightly puzzled by the picture in question on the request as I thought it pretty average, and by no means my best shot of the arch. However, after a sending a suitably sized copy for print purposes, I was assured that the image was fine and would go forward into the review process, and if selected it would appear in the book, for my trouble I would receive a copy FOC once published. I was delighted to learn that it was to be included, and felt that my efforts to bring to the fore the largely unnoticed Gascoigne treasures on the Parlington Estate was having some effect.
