Bespoke Retro Picture Frame 2.0

Bespoke Retro Picture Frame

i’ve been trying to get some reasonable photos of my frames with my new retroesk seals. this picture doesn’t really show them off, but its not this that caught my attention with this photo. the vertical shadows cast by the frame have given me an idea. i think these frames would work really well on a wallpaper with a strong vertical emphasis. something also a bit retro maybe. my problem is that at the moment my only way to play with this idea is in software, which make a poor substitute for a photo. anyone out their owns a wallpaper design studio? the paper type that is.

Free Download section now finished apart from the all important vector file downloads.

I’ve spent the last couple of days playing around with flickr and its got me thinking. This is now my third major Root2art site, but each time I’ve completed one the very act of developing a site gets me excited about different ways of displaying my work. This time however, this site has been designed to accommodate different modes of enquiry.

Flower on the Moon

I don’t know much about the craft of photography, but I think this is something of a priority for the coming year. I’ve had a reasonable camera for just over a year, but it is only in the last couple of days that I’ve started to feel as if its something I really want to play with.

Triad Photo Shoot

Obviously not a photo, but just 2 days of photographing stuff has influenced my graphic art output.

This is a dull post, but I’ve just got back from the arsehole of the UK (lincolnshire) where I’ve  spent the day scrapping scale out of cooling towers. Sometimes I have to go out and earn some money and its always a real shock to the system. My Brain is still numb from the smell of chlorine and the endless drive.

Down the Beach Hole – Jan06 I took this photo up the road from my home. This is the first photo I’ve published to the net, other than cheesy family photos. My interest in photography is a new one. You can see my average, but improving photographic experiments at the flickr account below.
