I‘ve seen plenty of custom alphabets, but can’t think of any that focused on numbers, that is until I saw this Number Character project by Skwirrol. Not quite finished yet, but I like where it’s going and eagerly anticipate the rest of the set.
This is an awesome idea, recycling old camera lens components into these one off retro bracelets. Brain child of Aussie Photography Craig Arnold(can’t find his site), but they are for sale in the UK Cost £100 – £150, available from Oye Modern. Not many left, but be sure to check all the sold one’s too »
I‘m going to have to start a category ‘events I wish I’d gone to but only just found out about them after they happened’ to remind me of these things next year. Ok I’ve done it.
This shot is taken from the The World Stone Skimming Championships 2009 on Easdale Island, Scotland. I saw that Anne Ward (I Like) had been this year. Apperently the island is made out of slate, so has plenty of little flat rocks that are ideal for skimming. It’s strange that the results are in meters, me and my brother always used to play the most bounces wins. Either way I want a go and will try and remember it next year!
For the past few years I’ve making these ‘fill out your Vital Stats, hand it over to your partner’ Christmas cheat sheets. My attempt to solve the age old problem of buying clothes for your better half at Christmas time. It’s generally been my most popular post of the year, for the simple reason I suppose, we need them!
So basically you fill out one and give it to your partner (or whoever you’re expecting a present off), or get them to fill out one for you so you don’t blow a surprise by asking for a particular.
