On Hold

I need to place an order to restock.  But, in order to do that, I need to know what I am short on.  I'm sure at this point, you are saying......  'Um, really?  Why can't you just count it and do your order?'

The reason it just is not as simple as that is because I made a promise to Mr. Bill that after the Midwest Fiber Festival was over, I would not be bringing the fiber back into the house.  I would instead be unloading it to the new shop.  And that would have already happened if I were not waiting on the electrician to finish putting in the wall outlets (picture coming later).

In the meantime, I tried out the Brookstone 'iconverter' this week end.  If you are just trying to make quick copies of your photo negatives and do not care about having top notch quality then this little machine will work OK for you.  If you are wanting top quality scans of your photo negatives do not buy this machine.  It works OK for slides, but not for print worthy quality.  Here are a few of the slides I scanned in over the week end.  Note, some of these have been heavily photoshopped.  None of my negatives turned out.  After the slides starts some old digital from the time before digital cameras were such a big hit.
There is a tree on the island of Dominica that grows gourds.

The island of Monserat.  This is a photo of smoke coming from an active volcano.

A tattoo band on a friends leg.

And so we start in on the digital images.  The majority of these were taken for a photography class I was taking way back when.  The one thing I took away from the class was.....  Always try to look at the world from a different angle.  In other words try to see a simple object in ways that most would never think of.

A very small basket in a grainy macro setting.

Yep, it's just a flower.  I do love my flowers

A disgusting habit.

I am thankful I no longer smoke.

I love fish markets.   Not only can I buy dinner, but it makes for a great photo too!
