A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through. I was able to get in touch with Jason to ask him a few questions. Q: How did you get into photography? Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business? Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share? Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers? Q: Any quotes you live by?

Silent World by Michael Kenna Silent World by Michael Kenna Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls (21) Posted by: Cathy on Oct 06, 2012 Tagged in: Untagged I saw this idea a few times on the Martha Stewart site and I would really like to make these as stocking stuffers this Christmas. It seems like such an easy thing to do and would really take no longer than baking a cake. I have some lovely old jars that I could place these in too which would really make it a lovely gift for someone. Materials: Baking soda Cornstarch Citric acid Spritzer bottles Food coloring Glass bowl Essential oil Baking molds 1. 2. 3. If you wanted to have a different shape, you simply just need to use a different mold, like ice-cube molds. This would give you a different way of being able to package them, like putting them in jars. Source For tutorials on how to market yourself online, go here.

In Pursuit of the Sublime Les calligrammes Voici un « corpus » de calligrammes que j’ai présenté à mes élèves, dans le cadre de notre projet poésie. L’objectif : comprendre comment le poète a construit ce type d’écrit pour ensuite un écrire un soi-même. La plupart des calligrammes sont issus de ce petit livre, une vraie mine d’or ! J’ai trouvé une séquence très bien faite ici et des compétences détaillées là Ensuite, j’ai proposé à mes élèves la grille de critères de réussite ci-dessous : Enfin, pour les TUIC, un petit logiciel sympa à télécharger ici Le tutoriel ici : Image trouvée ici WordPress: J'aime chargement… Jacob's Well, Wimberley, Texas Jacob’s Well is a significant karstic spring, the largest perennial spring in the Texas Hill Country. It flows from the most extensive underwater cave in Texas, opening in the bed of Cypress Creek, a few miles north of Wimberley, Texas.The twelve foot (four meter) diameter mouth of the cave serves as a popular swimming and water recreation spot for the local land owners whose properties adjoin Cypress Creek. From the opening in the creek bed, Jacob’s Well descends vertically for about thirty feet (ten meters), continuing from there at an angle as a series of chambers separated by narrow, often deeply silted and unstable necks, ultimately reaching a depth of at least one hundred and twenty feet (forty meters). From the dawn of recorded history until the modern era, the Trinity Aquifer-fed natural artesian spring gushed water from the mouth of the cave and as much as thirty feet (ten meters) into the air. At least eight divers have lost their lives while exploring Jacob’s Well.
