Rewatched Brothers Bloom, great movie by the way and one part got me digging out my pin hole camera pictures. Yes, a beer can makes a great camera.
Speaking of Brothers Bloom, I can't believe I hadn't spotted all of the hitRECorder cameos in that movie the first time round.
I've just been organising some stuff and came across this picture that I took of my little sister when I was back in college. I'd just bought a Pentax film camera from a junk shop and had become obsessed with black and white photography. My sister was being my model for the day and I took this laying on the ground underneath the swing and trusted that she wouldn't boot me in the face on the way back down. That's what sisterly love is. Not booting each other in the face.
The mask for a masquerade that never was.
I've just found this behind my bookcase. It's the mask I made for a collab to do with the fall formal. I don't know why I made it as I wasn't going to be attending. Even when it was on.
Anyway, random object shared.
I'm getting all excited about the London hitRECord at the Movies and I was just looking at some photos from the last time I was being snap-happy on the Southbank and this stuck out for me. It's painted onto the side of the Oxo Tower not far from the BFI venue. Seems quite appropriate to me.
InkedCanvas made some brilliant business cards and given that the HitRECord at the Movies event is just around the corner - I give you my own slightly crappy version. Doodles of ideas that became RECords that I'll scrawl info on the backs of if anyone wants my contact details on the day.
Taken on the day of hitRECord at the Movies, BFI.
Thankfully to get this shot the wind was blowing towards me. I then had to clean my camera lense off.
A terribly original title I know. This is a group of hitRECorders outside the BFI with the shadow and balloon cutouts that amymac had made and brought along.
Photo shows - creativegreen13, pamagotchi, penelopeziva, amymac, calamite.e, madcowre, nepenthes and emmatheancien

A friend's birthday present of DVDs sat all alone on my desk feeling quite under dressed for the occasion. I'm assured that they feel much better now and are ready to be presented to their new owner.
It was suggested that totallyjamie's pattern would also make great wrapping paper.
And it does.
I went to visit my family in Somerset and found that there is a family of hedgehogs in the back garden that my parents nightly leave food out for and which they show up for like clockwork. It may get to the point where they start knocking on the back door with requests. This photo is of one of the babies.
I have no idea why I'm uploading this photo as it probably won't be of any use to anybody but things have happened lately which meant that I haven't been contributing anything, so this is just the first step back.
And hedgehogs are cute.
I love Halloween and always do something to mark it. On the night I'm doing one of two things; I'm either out with friends and in costume or I am at home watching horror movies with occasional pauses to answer the door to give out sweeties to trick or treaters.
This is a picture of me with my friend Red and is one of my previous year's costumes in which I dressed up as the female Mad Hatter. As part of my costume I even had a pocket watch that was broken. Not a problem though. I just said "Of course it tells the right time! It will be correct twice today!" I'm method, damn it.
There are no plans this year so I will be carving pumpkins, watching horror movies and dishing out sweets. Still trying to decide what movies will be a part of my marathon though.
For CaptClare's 'Signs' collab. This sign is from a trip to China that I went on a couple of years ago with the martial arts club that I belong to. We were staying and training in the mountains in the Fujian Province. I took a lot of photos of that trip and I just thought the English translation of the road nearby was beautiful. The road sits between two mountain faces and every morning mist covered it.

We were staying and training for the most part in a hotel up in the mountains in the Fujian Province. During one afternoon which we had free I went exploring the various paths in the national park nearby. It made me laugh. It is accurate. Up the mountain it went.
For CaptClare's 'Signs' collab. A great book shop near where I work sadly closed down but their last closed sign did give me the giggles.
Old print on sides of buildings in Central London pointing out which houses are acting as bomb shelters for World War 2.
I saw this when I went on one of the Walk London walking tours last weekend. This is from the Subterranean London tour.
