Photo Details: I had been looking for a small but cool way to display pictures on a desk. I decided to create a prototype of a small picture stand. The prototype is so good, I think I am just going to stick with it as the main desktop attraction.
- Foam Board (same material often used for high school science projects)
- 3 inch knife from multi-tool
- Glue Stick
- Elmer’s Glue
- Gorilla Glue
- Lamination sheet
- Premium presentation paper with matte finish
The pictures measure 2 in x 3 in and are affixed to foam board. I can change the picture of the day easily and also create a different mood for the desk. Cool right. I wanted to create a wooden stand, but did not have any good wood lying around. In an effort to be more conservative, it is probably best to use a non-wood material and save the trees.
Photo details: Smartphone photography using vivitar cell phone macro lens. Very impressed with this inexpensive lens kits.

Photo Details: Kinder Eggs offered a cute little toy inside but they were forbidden in some countries due to child safety laws. While preparing this photo, I listened to Eric Clapton’s My Father’s Eyes. Not sure how that tune would sound with this pan pipe flute.
Photo Details: Once again, I found myself appreciating nature in all its beauty. I had thought bumble bees to be peaceful and kind creatures. Upon photographing, I realized that the bumble likes to rumble. After a quick sprint away, I got the message that a few photos was all the bee would tolerate and I should move on. This photograph was taken using a smart phone with a few modifications using Photoshop.
While the smartphone does well, it cannot replace the image quality of a dedicated digital camera.
Photo Details: For kicks and giggles, I decided to get a smartphone lens kit and discover a new avenue of photography. To my surprise, the macro lens did a great job capturing details that I have not been able to get before. To date, I have acquired several different lenses for use with smart phone cameras. This is going to be an interesting . . .
