1000 cups of Cranes - Week 19

Week 19!

This week I have made it to 340, which means I am over a third of the way there!
As we were out when I had cup 333, my partner and I were curious about who will get number 666? I have also been a little concerned of other numbers that might be deemed unlucky but alas what can I do. 

Enough about that I believe that everything happens for a reason and the right numbered cranes will luckily go to the correct person.

The backgrounds that I used this week have seen me start moving in another direction which I am truly enjoying a lot, but firstly in order, my t-shirt, the table, my diary, the curtains in the hall, a coffee cup and the coffee table, my cat Padme, a piece of gum tree bark in the grass, my jumper,  the clover patch, a piece of butcher paper with strong lighting, a piece of red paper with strong sunlight coming from the window, the mossy grass under the clothes line, my latte at the Pancake Kitchen, my drink bottle and my t-shirt, the sky with the gum tree leaves and one of the clothes line wires, a bench at a school, the gymnasium floor, the wooden folding table top, the bed sheets again and finally my jumper with the bed sheets and the lamp light. 

The new direction that I have been following has been moving outside and taking some amazing photos of cranes with leaves, grass, bark and sky, they just look incredible especially coupled with red cranes for contrast. So I am finding this collection to be very exciting and it gave me the idea of grouping shots into a smaller series of images, either as a set of cards or as artwork collection. We will see when we end up on the other side of this journey. 

I have to specially mention cup 340. Watching the sunset. This would have to be one of my favourite images to date. As this photo is my jumper with something underneath it to make the mountains. I held the bed sheet up behind the mountain and moved the lamp in close to create the amazing lighting effect. 
Which prompts me to say that all of the photo I take are not enhanced or photo-shopped after they are taken with only my HTC one phone. Some of them I use the filters on the phone, most of them I take without a flash. On occasion i will use the flash but I will shield the flash using either a piece of paper or my finger. I digress... 

This week Sean and I went and saw X-men at Mitcham Cinema and then we went into town for a late dinner at The Orignal Pancake Kitchen, the food and service at the pancake kitchen was awesome. The other guest were..... well the title of the image says it all "too much information" in so many ways. And that is all I am going to say about that. 

Mum and I went to the Persian Breeders Cat Club Show on Sunday for other cat show events visit the Feline Association of South Australia page. I will not be at the next event as I am already booked in at Market on Oaklands. This event was excellent and the food at the canteen was AMAZING, we met some wonderful people and were privileged enough to draw and met some beautiful cats, visit our Wonkie Knee Art facebook page. (they will be uploaded to the webpage galleries as soon as I have time)

If you have found one of these cranes please keep it for approximately one year, register your email address HERE and I will send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. In which I will ask you to bring the crane back so it can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition. 

Thanks Naomi
