Yarn Shop, Reykjavik


One of the reasons I love my husband still (we are on year #4!) is how creative he is, even though his work is mostly engineering and math-related. I'm quite sure that most of his co-workers have no clue that he collects art, has a huge music collection, and that he is one of the most fascinating photographers I know.

When we first met we took a tiny trip to London and he showed me how he used a crazy Lomo camera to take photos on a roll of film, reloaded the roll, and shot another set of crazy pictures on top of those with no idea how they would turn out. The result was like ceramics: you're never quite sure what you'll get when you take it from the kiln, but now and then you are surprised by something bloody brilliant.

Lately he's been using a specially-made teleidoscope and a cheap digital camera to create some stunning images of our trip and some of the artists playing at the festival. He took these images when we were casually exploring a yarn shop in Reykjavik.

It is amazing how something so simple...


can become something so amazing...








I am urging him to create a blog of his own, and I will probably be digging up his old prints to do it. It will be fun to go digging!
