Playing on the Table!

Hi folks,

the other night Heather, a fellow photographer, came and we played about with a lightbox and some props indoors.  At the end of the session I really felt ill and went down with a bad cold so I was unable to do a blog until today, I am a little better so here goes.

Lightbox with Mirano Glass Sweets, (that's all we could afford from Venice).

Figurine of a small Sax player brought home from New Orleans.

Revolution Kite Flyer made locally by Andrew Bull and a present from my wife.

One of Heather's paper weights on her lightbox.

Another small model called "The Artist" made at the same place as the kite flyer at Ode Street nr Sittingbourne in Kent UK.

Heather's very small ceramic bear having a lie down.

Heather's very small model Fiat car now converted to right hand drive. (she has a real one in the same colour).

To finish up here is Sues' glass Duck with Butterfly.

We really enjoyed the evening and had a lot of fun.

Best regards, Mike.
