I took this out in the garden to take better photo. It was windy. It kept on flapping about. I put stones on the corners. The wind blew them away, then picked the painting up like a kite. Like a kite without strings. I caught it, just in time and remembered why I do not try and take photos of my paintings in the garden.
If at first you don’t succeed, never try it again.
I bought a fish eye lens for my iPhone. It could be shit. I could be shit. For arguments sake lets just say the lens doesn’t work very well and I’m an otherwise fantastic photographer.
I am an otherwise fantastic photographer. It cost me £1 from eBay and it flew all the way from China. Am I expecting too much for too little? Am I too little for too much? Potato, potarto. No one says potarto. Just shut up already.
I’ll never be a photographer. I’ll probs never be an artist, at least not full time. But please humour me whilst I spent my expendable income on expendable items.
I had a truly splendid weekend in Brighton for my dearest friend Clare’s hen do. For those of you not in the know, she is the one in the above video that is being flung in the air.
You know what it is like – we have all been there – you know, when you’ve had one Babycham too many and the DJ starts playing ‘Bill Medley, Jennifer Warnes – (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’ and you decide to recreate that scene. You know the one – when Jennifer Grey takes a running jump at Patrick Swayze and he lifts her up in the air? Well I have realised that I am not Jennifer. And the poor unfortunate man who I rugby tackled to the ground was not Patrick. But we have all been there. Oh of course we have. There is a lesson to be learnt from this. That being of course – none of us are Jennifer and none of us are Patrick.
Don’t try this at home kids. OR in public either.
I mean yes, if you were to do it in either, at home would be a much, much better choice.
