And I have started a photography course at City College in Southampton,so now my head is swimming with f stops, ISOs and whatever the other one was - oh yes, shutter speed. We did take photos, but as they were of my fellow students, and I don't have their permission to use them here, I shan't be posting any.
The course was this afternoon, and I have discovered a drawback to driving into that part of Southampton on a Saturday afternoon. Those of you who know the city may know what it is. Here's a clue - although the traffic may have been made worse by this. It's a happening place, Southampton. Unfortunately. However, I enjoyed myself, and I hope to have better photos to show as a result, both here and on Snaps.
I am still working with textiles, though - a collection of tiny weavings
and some stitched photographs (there we go again).
I decided in bed this morning that I need to focus my textile work more, and to concentrate on the photos, the weavings and the machine embroidery (!) rather than the vessels, much as I enjoy them, as I don't know where they're going. (Most of my important decisions are made in bed over coffee. It's sticking to them that's the problem...)
Will I stick to this one? We shall see. It will depend on whether I come across any inspirational coiled baskets.
And my final achievement of the week, which I've just managed, is to work out how to add apostrophes in IOS6. (I've already had a conversation with Siri.)
Now if I could just discipline auto-correct...
