Questions, Observations

Today Was a Long Day





I failed to show The Line Writer how to use the macro closeup attachment lens on the Fuji Instax Wide 210 camera, but I really like the soft-focus effect he's achieved.

I also like his typo of "Loyal" for the Royal Mercury typewriter; we've had this machine out to the beach at Oceanside, California, the last few years during vacation, and it has indeed been loyal.

Another detail I observed was that he wrote out his rough draft longhand, in pencil, prior to typing it up. As if he's been paying some attention to you know who. And he did all this while I was at work. A great treat to find when I came home.

The White Shed



The Line Writer has been busy with school work for months, thus hasn't posted anything recently. But last night we gathered in the newly remodeled White Shed, a combination Man Cave and Club House (for men of all ages - but women are welcome, too) and, with classical music on the radio, he sat and sketched this illustration of the shed's interior, while I wrote my blog article, and Nana read.
