In my last post from Maungaturoto and the Dreams shop, I zoom in on the detail.
Some of it is small detail like the little cast iron shoe that looks big when seen in isolation but true size is revealed when photographed in situ… some detail needs to seen from the right spot, like the ironwork in the entrance doorway that creates a beautiful silhouette …
and some photos I took with a few specific readers in mind… Katie from http://interrobangsanon.wordpress.com/ adores insects so three guesses which two photos are especially for her… and the bicycle… yes I had Andrew and Friedel in mind from http://travellingtwo.com/ when I pressed the shutter on that one.
The rest are not necessarily things even I need or want, they are however forms of artistry melded into functional items that I find creative and pleasing to the eye. Life is about finding fun and inspiration and whilst my family are by far the leaders of the pack in this respect, there are also things that attract my artists eye… less materialistic drooling and more a few drops to water the artistic soul.
