Clare has glued and painted and glittered and embellished to make this house truly from HER and for ME if that makes sense?
Something else which is lovely about this gift is that when I took it out in the back yard to photograph it I found the cameras macro setting. There isn't much to snap in our little patch, but I will definitely be exploring this facility in the local gardens. I used to use an old 35mm SLR to rattle of the odd reel of real close ups, I even had some of Dads old macro rings to play with. I have missed the patterns and textures that I was able to record in this way, in general I like producing all over compositions rather than creating a landscape or picture and I'm hoping that this function will lead me back in this direction.
Hopefully I'll be able to show you the package I sent Clare soon, she's on holiday but I'm really excited about her receiving her parcel- it's the lovely anticipation of swapping! xxx
