Late on the uptake
Don't you just love the saying "that is so old" well I did, so in this vein of thought I would chuck on my lego bowtie, a denim shirt and show off my newly coiffed hair

Got some really cool 2 dollar glasses which were labelled 3D instead they spilt the spectrum like a prism, as the store clerk informed me after I purchased them. I placed them against my lens and magic happened, THANK YOU POOR LABELLING

Casio fx-9750G PLUS
This graphics calculator pretty much saves live in the NZ equivalent of an IB or GCSEs (A Levels?). Sorry to those who go on here for the non-me related photos, photography coming it was just a bit murky/rainy/not great weather here in little old Northland

A photographic experiment with my childhood kaleidoscope that I found in my lego (never mind the childhood nostalgia) I would've preferred if the kaleidoscope was a bit less segmented (if that is the right word. Anyway enough blabber enjoy and have a good day even if it might be raining or snowing you are still alive so make the most of the day

It rained, first time since October. You know you're scraping the bottom of the barrel when all you have to say is about the weather.

Old House
These pictures are from one of the first shoots I did for photography this year based on the establishment of emptiness and transcendence they echo the memories that once resided in here

Another Clip
This is based on a quote from Henry Ford (hence H Ford) which I think rings true to today's world
"You can't build a reputation and what you are going to do" so get out there do something and have fun

Royal Portraits 
Their seems to be an every growing disconnect between the Royal Family (UK) and the connotations of High Society and in the ever unforgiving world of Tabloids we have enjoyed their woes. I think this is perfectly summed up in the crochet  portrait of Prince Harry (you all can think of the rest anyway enjoy!)

Artist: Shauna Richardson

I took this picture around the same time as the lower post. It is of the Fisher and Paykel Auditorium at Auckland University. Side note: There has been no editing what so ever and is not CAD even though it looks like it just very good lighting by chance. ENJOY!

Just realised I could change the colour ratio on my camera (Canon 400D) how fun!

Side note: Just realised how vain my blog was... how sad

I thought this shoot was a fail so I just put them all together, quite happy with the result

For Textiles
If you're wondering "what the hell!" then your probably correct in your exclamation. Just wanted to share a crap-pie collage/montage for my textiles. The beach behind me is 90 Mile Beach in the Far North of New Zealand.

Concerned expression some articulated trousers that I made today and a lego tie copied from Hapsical he rocks it better.

Probably should've stopped sooner but had to chuck in the plate eyes and knife moustache. If your thinking this is a sub-standard copy of another blogger you'd be correct visit the Fake Sartorialist for better digital collages

My friend Ashie took this down at a Model United Nations Competition this year. If you're wondering why I am in a squat position I was Cossack dancing.

Coincidentally it is the forth term and it starts today. Wishing myself sanity and hope that I can get through portfolios and exams without burning out.
