Will it go ’round in circles

One of my Twitter buddies mentioned today that, as a kid, he wanted to make a career out of creating the images below.

Recognize them?

They’re Spirograph, which was one of my favorite toys as a kid.  (If you haven’t heard of it, well, you’re probably not a Boomer.)

SpirographBoxWe used pen and ink on paper and the special Spirograph tools to create those images — this was years before laptop computers or Photoshop manipulation were common.

 

They were all handmade.

Wonder what became of our Spirograph?

Egg siblings — any ideas?

What is your passion?

British photographer Jack Daly is asking people this question, and staging photographs on his website People with Passions to tell their stories.
lamp passion
Simon, lamps

book passion
Rob, books

archery passion
Jemma, archery

I love the simplicity of the images…and I like thinking about what passion I would want photographed if I had the opportunity.  Perhaps movies…or theatre.

What would be your passion?

Take a picture

To inspire today’s post, I scrolled through previous images I have used in the blog and selected one at random —

nap

Uh oh.

Not sure this one is going to do the job…especially on a national holiday.  Kinda feel the couch calling instead.

But wait — I have a laptop.  I can write on the couch. I’ll write my blog post there.  No worries.  No problems.

Uh oh.

The TV is in front of the couch…and Silver Linings Playbook is on Showtime.  That might get in the way of my writing.

Not so far.
