Lego® Relics exhibition

Yesterday, I went to the Lego® Relics exhibition, in Claremont. Some of the exhibits included a post-apocalyptic city inside the rear end of an old VW Beetle, and an icy settlement inside a vintage fridge!

Detail of the VW city - shows all the moving parts!

There were even more exhibits than this, such as Terabyte Tower (an awesome exhibit lit with black lights, based in old PCs and office equipment in the darkness), and one inside an old piano.

Wine glass bubble photograpy!

 


This is my favourite picture, I especially like the outlined bit on the right. (above here)

Today we did some bubble photography in a wine glass. We used extention tubes on the camera, and a flashbox to light it up.



Another picture done by blowing on the bubbles.




My other two favourite pics.

More bubble photography!

 Today for my photography lesson, I was taking photos of bubbles on wine glasses. This is done using a bubble mixture, an external flash box, and a black tablecloth. These are the results:







Community garden

 


On sundays we go to a community garden, and work there for a while.

Eyeball Photography 👁

 Today, we were doing photography of eyeballs. We even managed to get a picture of a cat eyeball (surprising, considering that the cats never sit still)!


Here are the results:






In order: Columbus the cat, L, and me.


Eye Photograpy 👁

 


This is a photo of my eye (L), taken outdoors.

It was quite difficult to get the eyes focused because the eyelashes kept being in focus, also it kept not being bright enough, so we had to put the ISO to 1600 to make it bright enough, also we had to use a torch some of the times!



Another one of me, but taken indoors this time.



I took quite a few of Columbus, because he was finally still enough to photograph!
