A true blue print

Hi Everyone

Seeing as we're going into Winter here' it's about time a create some prints for my shop on etsy.

I've generated several blueprints of ships since they're so popular and finding these is all too hard, expensive and timecomsuming.

These are the results, available in my shop see side below.

The origination of blueprints happened in the 19th century by involving a contact print being processed onto a light sensitive sheet. This reproduced the original architectural drawing or engineering design exactly. This light sensitive process could not create shades of grey.

Blue prints and technical drawings adorn many a home and look stylish reflecting your interests in anything from house blueprints, airplane design to engineering draughts.

A day in the life of a Parisienne

While its torrential rain outside here in Sydney, Im reflecting on warmer days spent in Paris. I remember that wonderful break we had in Europe and have selected some images, that I think reflect Paris so well.

Visiting galleries of note we came across this wonderful work by Raoul Dufy. So lucious in its roses pinks and puces.

I was taken aback by this petit group of enfants, all in their smocks, so well kempt and they reminded me of the school book tales of Madeleine. If the children are this smart imagine what they'll expect to wear as teenagers!

Aaah that irrascible french icon, as viewed from below a mountain of metal girders rising skyward.

Paris is always brimming with people c'est la vie.
