Image of Apologies...

Sorry for the lack of news lately, it's been too hot and balmy to do anything other than be in the garden. We don't often get Mays like this in Scotland, so we're making the most of it. Above is a view down the Leader Valley in Berwickshire.

And I'm afraid there won't be much news tomorrow either, as I'm heading to London to carry on the campaign to abolish image reproduction fees. We're meeting one of the national museum directors tomorrow. But actually at the time of writing I'm not sure I'll make it, as I'm stuck in Edinburgh airport waiting for a much delayed Easyjet flight. And now the fog is coming in... 

I hope you've all had a good Bank Holiday weekend, or for US readers, a Memorial Day weekend.

Update - I finally got into London at 2.30am. But we had the meeting today - at the V&A with Tristram Hunt - which was 'full and frank', as they say in political parlance. But it was also encouraging and positive, and I hope to be able to bring you good news from the V&A on image fees in the not too distant future. 

Now I'm waiting in another airport for another delayed flight back home. The things I do for art history!
