Knitting Kubric Style
Yesterday I stayed at home… urr… I mean “work” , Kevin took Chad in and went to the old office to wait for the gas and electric men to show up and turn things off.
The space now being phoneless, internetless, computerless, furnitureless (except for our chairs) didn’t offer him much in the way of distraction so he grabbed his knitting bag and was off.
I gave Chad the camera, a quick bounce-flash tutorial and told him to take a photo when he got off work since I’m running thin on non-blog material. I think he did a good job!
It’s fun to see other folks playing with cameras… Especially those that have a knack at seeing – but no training. Formal education and work history can sometimes be a burden. More often than not when I’m snapping something the guys will yell: “oh would you just take the damn photo!” – (meanwhile I’m holding up wrestling with reflector cards, bouncing flashes into my forearm (throws a pleasing warm color), or fiddle futzing with this or that. Going digital has helped me try to re-embrace spontaneity.
Got a decent amount of work done… A tiny signage program and a storyboard for an upcoming Flash gig.
I realized that in all this upheaval of late, (and general suburban “nesting”), we haven’t seen a lot of our friends lately.
I’m feeling friend-needy.
I’m not blogging.
