Domo!

Had some fun with some Domo figures I got recently:



Maybe if I am lucky, I can get more and make another.

Got a chance to use the Macro function on one of my newer lenses finally:



Came out nice I think. Printed very well too.

Random Airplanes

A little slow on the blog action here lately, but here's something:
While setting up a wedding recently, there was also the local Air Show going on.
Lucky for us, their flight path was right overhead, so while they may not be in the best
of focus (due to not being 'fully' prepared for such event), it was quite fun.

JetPens.com Pen Review

www.JetPens.com was kind enough to send over a sample pen for review, so here we go:

Here we have the "Le Pen" in Oriental Blue from Marvy

It's a simple pen, but nice and lightweight. The cap also has a good solid snap when closing.

It's very easy to write and draw with and this particular blue color is great. Be careful though, not to leave the tip in one place for too long, as with this kind of pen, it will bleed out on the paper.

For only $1.15 currently, with eighteen different colors, you can't go wrong with one of these pens.

Thanks to JetPens for sending the pen, It's been real enjoyable to use.

Be sure to check them out, they are a great place for Japanese style pens and stationary.

Vivid Sunset

Taken a while back, from the back patio at home. Made a print that's 36" x 12" and it came out fantastic; It looks just like it does when viewed on my computer.


Fun note: I did not own or use a tripod to take the shots (like 9 or so stitched together) in the making of this photo.
