My friend Tim has finally finished his ‘Through the Viewfinder’ project. He joined a bunch of other nutters a while ago who take photos through the viewfinder of another camera. Typically these other cameras are old twin-reflex models and the output is really beautifully stylised.
Here’s the construction of his rig.
And here are some of my favorites of a lovely set of shots:
Beautiful, beautiful Copenhagen. by rbanks.
We’ve just done the canal boat tour. Some of the new buildings are stunning. This is the Opera House. Most of the old buildings are also stunning.
Egg at Petit Port by Lenny & Meriel.
Nice eggs by Lenny. Or maybe Meriel. Not sure.
Jane posted her photos from her recent visit to London. Here’s a shot that she took of the cool sketches that Jasmine left in our guest book at the flat. This entry has set a high bar for any future guests…
My friend Lenny creates amazing rake art on the beaches of Guernsey, then photographs them with a camera attached to a kite. It’s a hobby. He’s very good at it. Shannon mentioned it the other day in her blog, when he got some much deserved credit on BldgBlog. Now he’s hit the big time with a mention on Boing Boing. Nice job!
My friend Sarah had a (mini) shopping spree at the new American Apparel store. The virtual one.
My friends Heidi and John have just put their short film “How to Make Cofee” in the can and ready for review. It’s an impressive piece of on-the-fly documentary film making, made under extreme conditions. At 5am. Before running a marathon. In a rented appartment that didn’t have the promised kitchenette equipment. Great example of the use of initiative.
In some ways it feels like a response to my earlier film, “Making an Honest Cup of Tea”, although they’re really showing off by doing the whole cofee thing in one take. Fancy Shmancy.
In this small excerpt from an upcoming series, Richard Banks demonstrates the optimal method for successfully making a satisfying cup of tea. Note, that although four mugs are shown being brewed at once, this should not be attempted on the first try. Start small. Use a little cup or something. And work up to it.
The results of a very creative session at our 4th, or maybe 5th, annual pumpkin carving party.
