I've just spent ages looking for my camera. This will ring bells for regular readers, who know that I have lost not one but two cameras, and then found them again after replacing them at huge expense. Robin was not amused to spend half an hour looking for it with me, only to find it tucked in beside the printer in the music room, the place where I took the photographs I wanted to upload in the first place. Oops.
I think that the problem is that we think we know what the thing we're looking for is supposed to look like. In this case, black thing, sticky out bit, small, funny shape... except that I couldn't see the lens, it had its back to me, so it just seemed to merge into the printer. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
The photograph was of Meditation, an abstract oil painting. I made it a couple of years ago, but don't think I've ever actually shown anyone the piece...so here it is. There are detail shots here
I'm rather fond of it.
