Lots of images today, sorry about that. Great day out, never seen the bubble looking so busy. If you’ve never been you should. On all this week too, somewhere to entertain the kids, so much going on. Today we saw the landing and blessing of the oysters. These were then taken on parade through town. Meanwhile at various venues throughout the town you could get the low-down on massaging, creates prints, see art (including the A1 art exhibition!), eat ice cream and drink beer. We also went and watched demonstration on Newfoundland Rescue dogs. They were really stunning dogs, wouldn’t fancy taking one for a walk though, huge things!
Attended the Joe McNally seminar at the Business Design Centre in Islington today (amazing building inside). Interesting seminar, got quite sluggish in the afternoon, but was great to watch the man in action. Aside from the information that was being disseminated from the stage, one little gem that had me amused the most came from a member of the audience. He declared that black and white images were just used to save a bad colour image. He never created them. They were never good things. Hmmmm.
These plates (great gifts from my older brother) have made dinnertime much easier. If food is hair, or a beard, or, well you get the idea, it gets eaten. Faster too. Thanks for creating Food Face Plates (by Fred!), one part of life just became easier (well until the novelty wears off!)
Another day of working, which means I am still switching between PC and iMac. What amuses me most now, is that when I got the iMac, the thing that bugged me most was how uncomfortable the mouse is. It is so flat compared the the Microsoft mouse I’d been used too. Had a bit of a whinge about it with some like-minded folks on twitter too. Now however, I don’t seem to notice it, to the extent that when I have to use my Microsoft mouse, it now feels too chunky. Strange how you adjust, eh. As you can tell, slow news day, so slow photo day. A 365 of a couple of mice.
Had a gorgeous surprise when a bunch of flowers arrived at the door today. So that is today’s 365. Thanks to you both, you know who you are!
Thank you to @whittytwit for the great idea of walking 200 steps and taking an image. Hope you like the interpretation.
Been too busy catching up on posts to take an image and need to get an relatively early night for a change. Given it is day 200 tomorrow, I will make an effort (after I have been to see Toy Story 3!), but for now, meet the boy who will not let you near his yoghurt. Really.
Wandered into Whitstable today to take friends for fresh air (and show them A1 at Horsebridge, obviously!). Was planning on taking a few images, but kids got a bit grumbly and son was ridiculously clingy (another phase?) so only managed a couple. iPhone and SLR came into play.
Well, I have learnt that a zucchini, courgette and marrow are all one and the same plant, just in different stages of growth, or at least I think I have. Someone please tell me for certain. In the mean time, here is the thing I thought was an overgrown courgette, that may just transpire to be a marrow.
Prints are up at A1 Horsebridge Exhibition. Not the best images I’ve ever taken, even for the iPhone, but they’ll have to do as they summed up the day. Amused to see that my two prints were positioned right below Emily Turners fabulous silk screen print, Horsebridge didn’t even know we are life long friends. Really impressed with my dad too, who for the first time ever has exhibited a piece of his art work.
