My iron + gorillapod + my camera
This was my setup for taking photos last weekend for the Pattern Review activewear contest. (Voting is open and runs through Tuesday 2/24--I'd be honored to receive your vote!!)
The iron was perfect because it is heavy and won't fall over under the weight of the camera.
That's my poor ruby red point and shoot. It's 5.5 years old, which is pretty old for a little point and shoot. I was running across an intersection when it fell out of my bag hard onto the pavement. It hasn't been the same since. I feel a bit sad to retire it, but it can't handle certain light situations anymore. My last camera met its end when I slammed the car door shut on my purse--the display took the impact. And I feel I am usually so careful with my things....
I took ~150 photos the morning of 2/14 for the PR activewear contest but half of them turned out like the above and had to be deleted from the start. It's like it can't focus in natural daylight anymore.
I also use the 10 second timer on my camera, which has to be the most inefficient way of taking photos.
I know some bloggers have an interest in photography and sewing... I just care about sewing but need to find a more efficient way of photographing my work, like the remote I've seen some of y'all using!
Er, isn't there a digit missing? No? 1F on Friday morning is the coldest temp I've ever experienced.
In other news, I am having the coldest winter I've ever experienced. The cold has been sustained for a long time now. Last winter was definitely snowier in NJ but this winter is much more cold. Typically it's in the 30's and 40's F all winter with a week of single digits or teens in January. All of February has been in the single digits, teens or 20's F except today when it was a glorious balmy 45F and sunny to boot. Speaking of boots, I've worn my snow boots every single day for quite a while now even if it wasn't snowing, because they are tall, fuzzy and warm.
Tmw: 22F with a low of -2F.
Then I read KLine's blog where she said last weekend was -40 where she lives, and that -40 is where F and C are the same.
Ok, that puts things in perspective!!
What's the wackiest thing you've ever used your iron for? What's the coldest temp you've ever experienced?
