1-9. Shots of the film clip Peter is filming for Vic Manuel, a local, and extremely talented musician, whom Scott has been recording. This song in particular 'Love is a Terrible Thing' has this wonderful and rich Leonard Cohen vibe, it is brilliant. I really enjoyed the process of hearing/seeing Scott's vision for the clip and seeing it come to fruition, it looked spectacular, especially with those rich red velvet curtains, Vic's make up and beautiful lighting. A fun day, made all the more special with a few locals making guest appearances.
10. Poe with the blackboard that he made and the chalk that he bought, he is so delighted to have these things so he can further delve into the world of playing schools.
11-12. Ilo is an old hand on stage but this was Poe's debut. He has been busy practicing the few chords he has been taught (the few chords that pretty much cover 90% of Bluegrass songs mind you) and felt that he was finally ready to get up on stage and play. He was such a delight to watch, he hung back, he smiled little smiles and later he expressed how nervous he was but how much he enjoyed playing.
13-16. Stills from a day taking shots and filming for The Mid North's song, Pot of Honey (yes, we did just happen upon that beehive, pretty great, yes). Again a fun day but unfortunately when we looked back at the footage we found that basically it was kind of crap. The idea, just a bit too earnest. Hmm, plan B hopefully commences on Wednesday.
17. A hand, a dress, a wall. A couple of new items have managed, somehow, to find their way onto my Blue Caravan shop, prompted only by a few flutterings of sales, thanks lovely ones, thanks for forcing me to update the shop. Granted there are a few new shots there but it was slightly rushed, hmm note to self, but put a but more effort into this venture. All in good time.
Yesterday afternoon Poe, Scott and Ilo were playing eye-spy. It was Poe's go and he spied something beginning with 'L' that was everywhere in our home but you couldn't see it. Everyone guessed for a long time but nobody got it.
Finally Poe gave the answer 'It's Love'.
