Sitting outside the house with friends, this poor little guy hit the window at speed and dropped to the ground. Knocked out for a minute or two, he slowly came to,moving his head, wings, up to a staggering standing position – no doubt a little scared of the predicament he had woken up to -and then flew off into a nearby tree to shake off the rest of the event.
I featured this creation a while back and have since made one big adjustment – a new home built neck. The old one certainly had a look about it, but was too wide at the top, making it hard to play. This new neck (along with quality strings) has made a world of difference. Crafted out of seconds pine planks, it’s kept the build cost low. Next…practice!
After a week of black and white, it’s time to have a small splash of colour. The grey cars in the lowering sun provided such as I made tracks home.
We just past our shortest day of the year, which generally marks colder weather to soon come in New Zealand. It’s been a busy winter with darkness generally before and after work, and non photo chores taking priority over small image shooting items.
