A Photo A Day(ish)....plus some.

From Saturday.

First I got arty, then I got crafty (felted slippers for the lovely hometime), and between those two points we went out for a drive.

Here's what happens when I try and get arty.

And here's what I notice when we go for a drive. And here's what I notice when we go for a drive.
Random people in the sunshine.






Random Person. Random Person.
Crap photo, but I liked his posture.





I am still uncertain about the ethics of taking photos of random people. Trouble is, I really like photos of random people just doing whatever, and when I'm out and about, this is what I notice. Hmm.

Taking photos of random people is perfectly ok...as long as they don't see you.
;)
Your crafty moment is lovely. I love that colour.

Those slippers are so awesome, I love them! How did you make them?

They're knitted and then felted.

First up you knit them loose and large, then you put them into a hot wash in the machine for a loong time until they shrink and felt up (well, down really) to the size you want.

Turns out it's quite easy.

Wow, how long?

And can you felt acrylics? Wool makes me itchy. I might have to try this at home if I can! Not that I can knit, I could always felt something for the cats though.

I'm afraid not - it's a wool thing only.

Fascinating. Am a felt fan myself, and had no idea it was that easy to do. How long is loong?

I think it was about 45 minutes - I just kept going back and resetting the machine to the start of the cycle. You don't change the water or anything. The water has to be hot and you can't felt a yarn that's machine washable - only yarns listed as handwash will felt.

I'm always conflicted about taking pictures of random people. I worry that they'll see me and say something.

I like your arty succulents. They look like mini trees. :)

As if I could resist an arty shot. ;)

And of course this means one ends up looking really furtive and guilty...

But people are so interesting to look at!

And my camera isn't small, so it's REALLY obvious that I'm taking a shot of someone. I haven't worked out stealth. I'm painfully awkward and weird.

But people really are fascinating. Must work on stealth.

It's OK to take photos of random people as long as you're arty.

And cool slippers! With a slipper model and everything!

I'm being random-arty then. So that's okay.

All stylish people have a slipper model to hand, don't you know.

(And thanks.)

Thankyou.

It's one plant - I'll get a photo of the whole thing up today or tomorrow. Quite neat, I reckon. 10B actually saved it for me from a rubbish removal job.

One thing that makes me awkward is that my own response to the sight of a camera is to get out of the way.
