Rainbow


Last Sunday on our way home as we approached our off ramp on the freeway, we saw before us a lovely rainbow. Since the only camera that was in the car was a little p&s that is what was used. Like they say the best camera is the one you have with you.

Seaplane


On our drive last weekend we saw this seaplane. Ted wanted to take a photo of it. Thinking he was picking up his camera, he took the shots. When we arrived home we found the shots were on the IR camera. I think it was a happy accident. Soooo this image was shot by Ted and edited by Marcia.

Digital Suminagashi


My granddaughters and I did marbling years ago when they were growing up. This is an experiment of trying to make Suminagashi in a digital way.

Suminagashi is the ancient Japanese technique of decorating paper with inks. It is believed to be the oldest form of marbling, originating in China over 2,000 years ago and practiced in Japan by Shinto priests as early as the 12th century. Suminagashi (sue-me-NAH-gah-she), which means literally "ink-floating" involves doing just that.
Japanese Sumi-e inks were originally used, dropped carefully to float on a still water surface and then blown across to form delicate swirls, after which the ink was picked up by laying a sheet of white rice paper atop the ink covered water.

What am I?

This is something often found around the home but it is not a welcome sight.
