The Studio

I was experimenting at work a few weeks ago with my new camera... I took these with the macro feature, I think they turned out pretty well!
I'm afraid we have a mouse in the house, er, studio... I've found some "evidence" to suggest it, but still haven't seen the little rodent. I'd love to see what Henry would do if it ventured out during the day. Probably nothing, based on his actions on a recent walk with my mother in law. She said a garter snake crossed right over their path. Did this Australian Silky (bred to kill snakes) do anything? Nope! Didn't even notice it!

My studio...

I'm a jewellery designer. These (minus the monster pencil topper!) are some of my "tools of the trade". I got a new camera for my birthday, and have been having so much fun fooling around with it. These photos were taken with the macro feature. I just love the black and white... everything just looks, well, better in B+W, don't you think?

WOW! I haven't posted in a while.

It's been a busy summer, and I use the term summer loosely. The weather has been mostly crap, a couple of heat waves during the week, then clouds and drizzle on the weekend...
Here we were at the dog park a couple of weeks ago, on a nice sunny evening. This dog is MAD for this frisbee. He is almost embarassing when we first bring it out. The yipping and sqeaking noises that come out of him are quite bizarre, but once we throw it a few times, he gets tired and can't make the noise through the panting...
