The house, that started to become a home.

The house, that started to become a home.

Step one of Project 49… strip it back to it’s original structure and see what we were left to work with.

This involved (quite amusingly at times) several layers of wallpaper on wallpaper on wallpaper. If you have never peeled off wallpaper before, my gosh it is addictive. It is just one of those things where you get stuck in and find yourself still at it 3 hours later because it is weirdly satisfying. Anyway, we proceed to strip away the tiles, paper, old flooring, old kitchen, old bathroom, light fittings and anything else that needs to make way for shiny new counterparts. See the piccies below for more! Once the prep work is done, we bring in the heavies… (click on the pics to see a slideshow)

‘Observe your scene before pressing the shutter, considering how all the elements in the frame interact with one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground-level POV. Place two things side by side in an unexpected way.’

It’s back to those glorious flowers again. This time featuring my pretty ball of fluff. She sat so neatly unaware she’s a muse of mine.

Photo 101 Day Six: Connect

“In this age of social media, we hear the word connect often, don’t we? Connect with us on Facebook! Connect with me on LinkedIn! Given what today’s technologies can do, it feels like the world is getting smaller, and we’re more connected than ever before.”

This evening I took a few photos of these two playing together and the connection they have. This little being follows Angus wherever he goes. She greets him when he gets home from work her little bell tinkling as she trots in behind him and she hunts out his lap when he is resting purring VER LOUDLY whenever he is near… Tonight, after playing chase up, back and around the garden, he flung her (gently) onto the hammock and started tickling underneath causing her eyes to widen, much scurrying and much laughter on our part as she scampered up and down whilst the hammock rocked, her tail fluffed up, her posture low and ready to pounce, her padded paws dotting around like shes furiously pushing buttons on a supersized keyboard, trying her best to catch this mysterious ‘under hammock creature’.
