autumn

I spent the weekend at Esmes place in Leipzig, where we went for a walk and took a lot of pictures.
She's also into knitting socks and spinning at the moment, and so the whole visit just became a very relaxed retreat of knitting, talking, sipping tea, cooking pumpkin soup, spinning, walking through falling leaves and jumping over little pools of rain along the path, more spinning, knitting and cuddling the cats. Just perfect, I feel so relaxed!
Some photos from our walk:

October's hurrying past me..

...and I seem to stand besides the carousel. Maybe that has to do with the dwarves and tree spirits in the park, maybe they've bewitched me?

bike protection charm

fahrradbeutel

Yesterday, I made a bike protection charm, containing a dagaz rune, one Thors hammer, dragons-blood (resin), Asafoetida, chili peppers, hair, safety pins, and I can't remember what. I painted a very nice skull on one side, and I'm planning to paint an eye symbol on the other.

Ride half an hour - voilà: the park!

And the willow dome.

Project 52: Woolshooting

Yes, I did shoot wool! I shot pictures with the camera of a wonderful hand dyed skein of Araucania Ranco yarn. Today I went to my local yarn shop and couldn't resist this beautiful yarn. On the way home I decided to go for a walk with this yarn in one hand and the camera in the other and do a real great wool photoshooting. My man decided to join me and we had so much fun walking in the park and arranging the yarn and taking pics of it!

This is my photo for Project 52.

And because there were so many great photos and I can post more than one here on my blog (as opposed to the project group) here's another one:

There was a guy playing accordeon in the park. And he played wonderfully. In winter. The scene was surreal but.. nice! And the colors of the yarn and the grey sky and winter leaves and winter grass - perfect.

Another swan

This is gimped - well, I did what I could. Gimp is new to me and I've got the impression that Photoshop is better in manipulating digital images...

This is the file without any manipulation:

I've got some quilt blocks for my midget quilt sampler done as well, but I still have to take pictures of them.

I'm studying photography

Two days ago, Seamera gave me a link to a very good online-photography workshop/website. I't all in german, so I think it's of no use to post the link... well ok, here's the link anyway: Striewisch Fotodesign.

This Website is fantastic! For the first time I have the impression that I can get better results with adjusting the shutter time, focal length, and so on by hand than I get with all functions on auto mode.
I also learned that it's often better to take darker pictures and brighten them up on the computer, than to take bright pictures and lose information - especially in areas which are very bright and will be displayed as pure white areas.

This is one result of my session today:
