Giving Things a Go
Today’s post is going to be quick. I am late with it and I need to do some other stuff. I decided today to give something a go. It hasn’t really worked well, I rush too much, but it is a beginning and something that could be a lot of fun in the future.
I saw an image in the reader the other day of two hands with a map of the world on them. It got me thinking and I wondered if I would be able to do something similar. so I gave it a go with two white coffee mugs and put an image of wrapping paper over the top. It hasn’t turned out too bad, but I need to experiment a lot more. I must write down some notes on what I have done and what to do differently.
This one I did with all white crockery again. I probably should have lightened it again. I am pretty sure I know what I would do differently next time. It is another interesting process to explore and one that could open up new possibilities I look forward to experimenting more with it.
Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, there are so many comments. I am having a really hard time keeping on top of them and I am not sure what to do. At the moment I have 597 comments to respond to. I am thinking of making the decision to not respond to everyone anymore, and only do those that ask me questions or want more information. The ones that just make a short statement should always assume that I really do thank them for their comments. I am hoping no one will mind if I do that from now on.
A woman asked me recently for some advice on a waterproof camera, one her husband couldn’t destroy while fishing or when put through the washing machine. I wrote an email to Michael’s Camera and Video and asked them what they would recommend. They recommended two cameras, the Olympus TG-1, and the Panasonic FT20 which can go to a depth of 5 metres. The first one retails here for around $400 and the second around $230. I hope this helps.
