I have been fiddling with the new camera.
Most importantly I wanted to check out the close up function - very important for those crafty shots you know.
and by accident the sharp close-up, fuzzy background shot
Then I figured out the black and white trick......................
Tonight I went for a walk to the local park to get some night shots.
You'll need to turn your heads on the side for this one - I haven't figured out the rotate thing yet.
I didn't do any editing to these pics, just uploaded them and blogged them and apart from changing to night setting or macro setting I didn't do anything fancy to the camera- you should see the instructions !!!!
In an effort to maintain day-job sanity and because I saw the idea over at futuregirls blog, Annie and I have now got a CRAFT-AT-WORK challenge for ourselves.
We each have 24 linen squares measuring 6.5 inches. We each have a week to complete a small stitchery on each square during our lunchtimes at work. We can prepare (iron on the stabiliser etc) at home, but the stitching is at work. Of course we will make up or change the rules as we feel like it.
I am hopeless at stitching - I only know blanket stitch and stem stitch and I just do it bigger and smaller as I need it , so Annie is charged with teaching me something a bit more exciting.
We aren't sure what the squares will become and I am yet to decide if I will have a unifying theme to the squares, in case they all end up together or whether I might just wing it...... suggestions anyone????
