And I have several pictures to share, again…
The first three pictures were all taken while I was playing around with the 150mm macro lense my friend Eviann was kind enough to lend me.
Solan isn’t usually very patient with me taking closeups of him, but this evening he tolerated having a lense stuck in his face for quite some time.
This doll was made by my bonus grandmother Evelyn. She made some amazing dresses for dolls. She took lace, dipped it in liquid ceramic, draped it on the doll, did some other stuff and painted it. I’m so lucky to have two of the smaller of these dolls. My bonus mum has several of the bigger ones and I always admire them whenever I visit.
Descriptions of how it’s done can be found on the Internet, way above my competence or patience level.
This bit of rock has been cut in two, so if you turn it around you can see the mineral inside it. I don’t know what kind of mineral it is, but the “backside” is really pretty too.
Inger Marie Stein has been a teacher at Bergen Katedralskole since 1969 and devoted much of her career to teaching Norwegian to foreign students. This week she was awarded The King’s Medal of Merit, presented to her by the mayor of Bergen, Trude Dreveland.
To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme you must post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky at that Saturdays Snapshot post at At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don’t post random photos that you find online.
