Wooden Nursery Mobile

DSC02207

 

A friend of ours had a baby a while back and we wanted to make somethings special for her baby shower.  My wife had the idea to make a wooden mobile and this is what came of it.  All pieces are cut from baltic birch and hung by twine with gold foil.  The edges of the clouds are painted white while the raindrop is turquoise.   I’m very pleased with how it turned out and the gift was very well received.

Due to the praise it received I have made and posted another mobile for sale on Etsy.

Photo of the Week

Ahhh, Amsterdam.  One must wonder whether the railings along the canals are to keep people from falling in, or simply to serve as a place for all the bikes to be locked up…  This week’s photo is from a November trip to Amsterdam.  It was fairly cloudy that week but there were a few moments of sunshine.  I really liked how the point of view makes it seem like the bikes are clamoring for a view of the steeple in the distance.

 

Taken with my voigtlander Bessa R, not sure which lens, quite possibly my 15mm, and using Kodak Tri-X.  Processed with D76 and scanned on an Epson V700.
