Bookbinding and Father's day.

Over the years I have learned many different techniques and one of them is bookbinding. This is the very first book I made and I even marbled the paper for the cover. I gave it to my father as a gift ,and he filled it with carefully drawn diagrams and technical notes which are a mystery to me except perhaps the ones about hydro culture. When he died, the book came back to me. It is nice to have something we shared, each because of our own interests.

The temperatures are rising and today was the perfect time for a dip in the pool. I also wanted to make some shots with the Aquapac that fits over my 'point-and-shoot' and it worked rather well. I set my camera on 'daylight' for white balance, kept the sun in my back and my model cooperated most of the time . I didn't do the 'bubble test' to see if my pack was absolutely sealed, so I didn't submerge the camera entirely. Tools: Canon S400, Aquapac, a Weimaraner and a purple ball. If you want to see larger pictures, click on the collage.
