campanula and bottle on chemistry stool

view light box - here I am again with the chemistry stool and indeed the blue bottle which has appeared several times before. Under one photo a while back I wrote a little about the chemistry stool and here it is again:

 

I'm fond of this chemistry lab stool I picked up in a junk shop. I think, as a 15 year old, the only fear I saw in an adult's face, directly because of me, was that of the chemistry teacher. After a couple of minor mishaps/ accidents, I managed to blow up a permutit water softener, accidentally, of course - an amazing sight as it cracked and crazed and disintegrated in front of the class and then, when he said to me - YOU - don't you touch ANYTHING - I saw fear . . .
