This week’s challenge proved hard to think of something suitable. It was to use software to make a composite image. What to do? But then inspiration came… I decided to use my Lego Space Shuttle to simulate the launch of a satellite into orbit. These were the ingredients:
The model was shot against black card (much easier to key the final background over) while the spacewalking astronaut was hung from a piece of cotton but his foot, from one of the retort stands I use for my splash shots.
The star trails were taken from last year’s Day #1795 image, Heavenly Bodies, and rotated to fit better with the direction of the shuttle. Some layer masking and blending gave me the final result, Launching A Satellite:
Me and Leo and lots of our friends have had tons of fun at Telly Centre over the past three years. We were very sad to learn that it is soon shutting for good. So this week we insisted that Caz take us to work with her so we can say goodbye properly.
Today it was lovely and sunny so Caz decided to take me and Leo out on a long bike ride to look for some geocaches. We found three altogether. We had our pictures taken with two of them. The first was cunningly disguised as a nut and bolt and the other one was in a tin which looked like an iPhone! But we were very clever and spotted them quickly. What fun we had!
The Aerosol Crew like to hang out at The Graffiti Wall. Drip and Tag helped me make this week’s Challenge 52 image. The topic is Fences, but they insisted that the definition would stretch to Walls too.
