[click picture for a larger view]

I asked my grandson, Reid, to draw a picture of a monster and e-mail it to me. I used a projector to help draw it on a sheet of watercolor paper and painted it in three dimensions, and, voilĂ .

I give credit for the inspiration to Dave Devries who has a website where he describes doing this.

Cabled scarf

About that cabled scarf. A number of people have emailed me asking about the pattern for the scarf (April 14 post). I didn't use a pattern for it. I don't know if there are instructions online for double sided cables. It must be in books somewhere but this was a case of 'independent invention'. I probably should write down what I did before I forget how I did it.....

Slow motion

I decided to try the slow motion waterfall technique. The shutter speed is about 5 seconds on the tripod. Wadsworth Falls.

The dam in the Milford town park.

In and Out

A bird of some sort flew into our screened porch yesterday...
This morning I found the inward hole on the left screen and an outward opening on the right screen, popped out from the corner. And lots of bird poop on the floor. I guess he was scared sh**less.
