me on Monday

it was a weekend that started with coffee and brioche sitting outside in the sun – and a nice memory trigger of my Saturday morning ritual when I lived in Wellington (NZ) of buying brioche from the baker and coffee from a cafe and sitting looking out over the water


it was a weekend of taking photos of colour to use in my daily pixel magic – creating a peice each day based on photos has really altered how I look through my lens – the pixel magic works on light and dark and contrast

it was a weekend of creative stimulus at the Mini Maker Faire:

  • talking to a woman who had turned video of a person running into video of fluid glass and sand and chrome moving and then turned some of them into sculpture showing a fluid movement – I enjoyed discussing with her ideas of what next
  • making a smartphone microscope (more of that on Wednesday)
  • being the hind right leg of a massive dragon puppet
  • hearing sound when you touched an image on a map (emerging technology that prints circuits)
  • talking to re-use enthusiasts about their hopes for the future
  • drinking up the buzz of people of all ages excited about IT and creating things

now I have a nice pile of cards and fliers to sort through and websites to visit

Waving to everyone and hoping you have a good and creative week – special waves to Sian for hosting our Monday get together and to Gail

That looks like a lovely place to start the day!

That's a wonderful picture..I can feel the Spring sunshine coming off it.

That sounds like an excellent event. I've been teasing TTO here that he didn't invite his old mum across for the Yarn Festival down your way. I read about it somewhere the other day and thought it sounded good

Have a great week!

A lovely way to start what turned out to be a very creative weekend. Hope a great week is to follow.

A feast for the mind as well as all the senses :). Your photo captures a lovely light on that brioche.

Gosh - that makes me soo want to be there. For the coffee and view, not the sorting and working!
