Dog Blog Post #511: Today's Daily Dog Challenge was...
"18. Take seven pictures and show off only the fifth one. Be honest!"
... and I failed right off, as I forget to keep count and end up taking ten shots. The fifth is above, but my favorite was #10, below...
... this also worked for Scavenger Challenge item requiring a picture containing "bamboo". The puili (bamboo sticks) and ipu (goard) are played for hula dancing, and are around 40 years old. While the puili have developed some long cracks over the years (although still usable) the gourd looks the same as the day it was given to me.
But before I took those shots, I experimented with lighting (i.e shifting the floor lamp around) and distance (since I'm using a different camera now) in my old "winter setup location" and took this one...
Scavenge Challenge November 2011 - "7) This one's especially for the girls! Photograph something hand-knit or crocheted."
Artistic Temperament Scavenger Hunt - "#1. My First…"
111 Pictures in 2011 - "#13. Handmade"
... as I had no idea how to knit or crochet, bought the stuff last night, watched a YouTube video, and gave it a go this morning. The blue piece over Zachary's paw was my first effort, the greener one around his paw was my second, and the yarn ball in front of Henry was finger knitted by my son many years ago. :)
I must say, that assuming I can take the shots during the day (a BIG "if") the lighting in the winter location (the dining room) is far superior to the summer location (the kitchen).
