We visited our good friends Toyozo and Grant at the weekend, and before I knew it Toy had made these beautiful origami paper cranes for our son to play with.

They look a little battered now, but that’s just a sign of how much he enjoyed playing with them.

I used nothing more complicated than a few sheets of printer paper and the light from my window to set up the photo. You can see here just how small and delicate they are.
