Here's a little bit of trivia. What was the first thing I saw when I went to make myself a cup of tea after opening up the Showroom here at Dunstone Design??? A shiny new and red vacuum cleaner! A chargeable and cordless one! For the girl who HATES to vacuum, unless it is a truly cool and easy to use one, this brought a smile to my face this morning. I always used to say that I am too creative to clean, but really, I think I am beginning to discover that I work better when there is more order than chaos. But using truly crap vacuum cleaners is tiresome and loathsome, and makes a girl want to put it all off and say 'what dirt on the floor???'
Just for a change of scenery, these are some images I took for Dunstone Design last week, of the brand new river red gum dining suite set up at its new home. I am still steadily working out the off-camera flash. Clearly I'll get better results when I can get my head around which soft boxes and stands to buy for my flashes, and purchase another SB-910 flash that will take more than 30 or so pictures before the SB-900 flash that I own sits down and cries, telling me that it's overheated. It was a real design flaw in those speedlights. The 910s are excellent though!
