Recycle


Glass Baskets

Technology weekend. Finally I got sick of my procrastinating.
I've got way too much work that hasn't been digitized, so I'm
relearning slide and negative scanning. Oh how I hate manuals.
I started with this neon, broken glass and wire mesh basket
piece. I made this quite a few years ago and only exhibited it
once. It might make more sense in our new "green" culture if
I hadn't sold the neon tubes and generator to fund other work.



Back in business

It was also technology crash week. I was using my point and shoot
Canon this week to photo a wall piece and tripped the wrong
lever on the tripod. The camera ends up on the floor with a
severe bend to the zoom. Its' replacement came yesterday; a
Canon SX10 with 10 megapixels vs 5 and a 20x optical zoom vs
3x. Bad timing for our finances. I had hoped to save for a digital
SLR with all the bells and whistles but they are too far out
of my range and this seems to have most of what I really
need. Strangely, Karen's happy not to think about a birthday
gift.

This is a note to Karen - please pass it along, Bill! Thanks for your heartfelt comments about Pepper. Your dog sounds like a kindred spirit - wish our old girls could get together and commiserate. And I totally understand how you feel about not having to think of a birthday present for your husband. It's always a big challenge for me too. Hey Bill - I like that piece in the first photo- maybe it was ahead of its time.

Hi Bill, I love my Canon S5 lS... I have had it for almost a year...and if anything happened to it I would get another one in a minute or however long it took to drive the 45 miles to the city... It is so easy to use...
or maybe I'd get one like yours as I really like that yours has a bigger optical Zoom...

Have Fun with it!!!

You must have been SO bummed when your camera fell on the floor.

I concur about not having to worry about pressies for husband :)

Corrine, you can't believe how bummed! But all is well now and I think I'll reward Karen's spirit with some Chakaia Booker lingerie. (not familiar with Chakaia-see Jafa post from march 1)
