You can never have enough writing tools! This is part of my collection of pens at home - the ones I use the most <:-)

365/30 - Posters

These posters are waiting for my wall to be finished so I can put them up. Hopefully by Tuesday afternoon as the students start on Wednesday morning!

365/29 - Workspace


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

This is my corner of my office - I'm currently sharing it with our Librarian who is homeless until her new library is completed (my new classroom is her old library). I'm very lucky to have the office - later I'll use it as the quiet place for kids to do podcasting or movie editing etc.

365/28 - Walled In


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

These are the walls of my classroom with some closeups - still not sure when the one new wall will be finished though.

365/27 - Oddly the same


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

Didn't feel particularly inspired today so decided that I'd do a photo booth shot with an effect added - unfortunately I can't tell you what that effect is!

I'm sure someone will enlighten me.

365/26 - Both sides now


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

Some of you will know what I'm talking about regarding the title!

This shot taken from the balcony of my room. I just love the bright fluffiness of the clouds. A few minutes later and this scene was gone.

365/25 - Pre-Dawn


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

5am shot from my balcony - I went outside to see what the cloud cover was like as the ISS was due to pass overhead - no stars showing at all so I took this photo as a consolation.

365/24 - Surfcasting


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

Today was the surfcasting competition day - unfortunately the kahawai weren't biting!

This is my compilation including some real kiwi fish'n'chips on the beach side and the terns in flight (I think they're terns) catching chips as I threw them into the air.

The young boy on the bike was having fun cycling into the water.

365/23 - walled in


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

This wall is very significant to me. I've been waiting all holidays for it to go up - it's the closing in of my classroom.

But it is also significant to me because the amount of display space on this one wall is more than all the wall display area I had in my old classroom.

Eventually the wall will be covered in some kind of fuzzy stuff (don't know what it's called) which is ideal for sticking other "stuff" onto.

It will be a few months until it's finished so in the meantime I'm thinking of "painting" it with kids handprints - multicoloured ones . (After it's been plastered and sanded of course!

365/22 - ABC


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

You can buy fancy lettering or you can make it - with the help of my daughter we've cut out and laminated 3 sets of these 6 fonts. A job well done - and much cheaper than if I'd bought some sets.

365/11 - Bamboo


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

I'm still coming across things of my mothers as I open bags and boxes at random times - these are gift tags she must have bought when living in Hong Kong (or maybe bookmarks) made with what looks like slivers of bamboo. Close ups of some of the individual cards are on flickr.

Adding these details because others do - went out and bought a new camera today. (Edited to note that perhaps Exposure/Aperture/Focal Length/ISO could be good for contrasting information about the photos so will include these with all photos - maybe!)

365/1


cc licensed flickr photo shared by dragonsinger

Camera: Nokia 6121c

Aperture: f/3.2

Focal Length: 4.9 mm

365 Photo Challenge

The challenge is to take a photo every day and post to flickr - then up load here. Most of my photos are taken with my cell fone - nokia 6121c - but some will be taken with a school camera (maybe).

Edited to note that I've now bought a camera! A Samsung PL50 which i'll be using along with my cell phone.
