An Ideal Piece Of Equipment For A Seamstress
The Little green light on my router has just come on, which means i´m online in the house right now- about time too!
So now i can catch up with all those posts from fellow bloggers that i´ve archived because i did´nt have time to read them in the wife´s giftshop- the only place we had an internet connection!
I may have mentioned that we found an old but perfectly preserved sewing machine in the attic of the in-laws in Germany, according to the logo it´s “ideal”, it probably was in the 50´s and 60´s when housewives were sewing hemlines and men wore turn-ups on their trousers, to make a little pocket money, now it´s sewing on Nike labels in a sweatshop in Asia, so probably not “ideal” for those that have to work (slave) in those environments-Thailand taught me about how lucky we are to live in the west!
Another Tamron 10-24mm photo this one and I just love this lens for the intentionally distorted angles you can get with it when you want, it´s not called Ultra-Wide for nothing!
Some say this lens is great for landscapes and Vistas-I don´t agree (personal opinion) I think it works great for getting up close and personal-architecture for example – and people, so long as you know them and they don´t mind you getting in their face. Landscapes and Vistas have never really worked well with this lens for me-but then maybe i´m doing something wrong!
