+Steven Kennard is waaaay more than just a pretty face that turns wonderful creations in wood (and takes beautiful photographs). He is also an accomplished musician. Here he was playing his Bertrand Gaillard one row D melodeon, outside in our garden.
This was taken a few years ago and I found it when searching for photographs to be made into a slideshow of him that Canadian Woodworking Magazine is preparing to feature. They wanted to have some photographs showing him relaxing and this seemed a good one to include.
I had the idea to photograph the garden through the diamond panes in the back door and was interested to see if the angled glass would give fractured results. When Joni appeared under the bird feeder (there is really only one round one and one each of the others) and seemed to be confused as she looked at them this was the picture I got. (I'm a little slow in replying to everyone's lovely comments, please forgive me, especially as I so much appreciate them. I will do it as soon as I can! Thanks all! 🙂 )
I hate shopping. I always have. As a child the very mention of the word used to make me exhausted and give me a headache. Now, I don't feel much different about it and can't really understand those who do it for fun. A visit to a shopping mall is my idea of torture. But needs must at times and on Saturday I had to go shopping for drugstore glasses. These are interim (so that I can see) while I wait for my new contact lenses to arrive this week. (For those who don't know, I had eye surgery in December and they have only just been able to finish measuring so that I can be fitted for glasses/lenses.) So on Saturday shopping was more of a blur than usual. 😀
I took this photograph and when I saw it, it reminded me of +Achim Blechschmidt and the wonderful work he does. So it is with a tip of the hat to Achim, whom I really suggest you add to your circles if you want to see some exceptional quality images.
