7:23 ish, Saturday. It's been dark when I get up, but daylight savings ends on April 4, so it'll be a bit lighter for a bit linger, then we head towards the more contemplative time of the year. Joy!

Designers, Meet Tabatha

Yesterday was so sunny this is the best I could do to reduce the reflection, but can you see the dress? It's actually the top part of the dress that surprised me.

Playing with the Topp Twins

I went to a workshop on Sunday, and spent four days making collages. They take longer than you think!

Bugs in my house - Pinhole Shot

How we got this? See our previous post about this bug (Artist's site here).
Why I'm posting this bug again?  Well, I run out my stock for one and I was playing with a cheap Chinese made body cap for my Nikon in whole weekend and this is a result.

This photo was taken without any lens but tiny hole.  This is called pinhole photography.
Here is some detail of my DIY pinhole and some experimenting result.

Taken with a toy - Extra

By moi. JB has a similar one here, because he was the one that noticed the interesting "reflection". I also took one of JB and Mrs JB but it wasn't in the developed negative.

Taken with a toy 11

Even those signs... somewhat looks different.

Those were from the first roll went through the camera just after I've assembled.
Film advance wasn't so good as it was not consistent.  I need some adjustment and I hope it getting better.

It's a very nice place to have a fantastic local beer.  The Rome is a Italian restaurant where I haven't been there yet.

Twin Lens Reflex - Toy Camera
This is like a plastic model. All plastic include lens. Only metal parts used for this are screws and springs. I just go through fist roll and show you some images in next few days.
It has only one apatite and one shutter setting.   Sorry for a poor scan.

We have those hanging baskets all over in the town.
