I like the colours, and the texture of this one. It almost looks like some sort of Winamp visualisation.
In clock news – big bag of components has arrived, new set of hole saws have been procured, case has been drilled, meters have been fitted – it looks awesome! Next on the list is prototyping the circuitry so I don’t have to use a whole arduino to run the thing.
This is sort of a poorly constructed nod towards my mate Pip who once put on an exhibition featuring photos of anthropomorphic shopping trolleys. Although his photos were much better than this one.
I’d have reshot something better this evening, but I’ve been busy! I’ve spent most of the evening tidying up my work area, measuring and marking the wooden box I bought to house the clock I’m making. I then very gingerly drilled the pilot holes for the meter cutouts, panicked, and then decided that I should treat myself to a new set of hole saws before going any further.
Colours of Light
It turns out that rainbows are really hard to take photos of. It doesn’t help much when they appear over such uninteresting scenery.
Penny is sulking at me because she really didn’t enjoy her trip to the vet to get chipped this afternoon. It probably didn’t help that I did the hoovering when we got back. Still, if she’s going to sulk at me anyway I may as well make the most of it.
While she’s downstairs sitting on the windowsill feeling sorry for herself, I’ve been upstairs playing with my flashguns and that pack of gels I posted the other day using it as an exercise in “flagging” so that light only goes where I want it to.
The results are reasonable, but I’ll have to pick some more sympathetic colours before I go trying it out with any people in the shot.
I’ve spent most of the day in bed with a stinking headache. I’m not up to thinking about photos much, so here’s Penny curled up in a deckchair.
She’s been climbing the walls this week, itching to get outside to enjoy the sunshine. She’s booked in at the vets for her last jab on Tuesday though, so a week after that she’s allowed out to play.
The River Trym
It’s not really a river at this point, more like a small stream. It was a really odd day for taking photos today. Really harsh light and really deep shadows. I spent 2 hours wandering around the woods at Blaize Castle and shot almost nothing because the contrast range in every frame was just far too great.
Friday was payday, and international sysadmin appreciation day – as I work in a building full of sysadmins, we all piled into the pub after work for some mutual appreciation.
This is Adam. He’s a sysadmin. Appreciate him.
I recently took delivery of a lee filters swatchbook so that I can gell my flashguns for a project I’ve got ticking away on the back burner.
Can you tell that today has been a “no ideas day”? Still, only 160 of those left to go.
On a wall. Or bubbles in a pond. Take your pick.
