I couldn’t find my camera again this morning. I took it with us to a restaurant last night and I’m hoping I didn’t accidentally leave it there.

So the first couple of pictures are from the Panasonic and the rest are off the webcam (Its tough to get a decent picture with the webcam)

… and for some reason my pictures are uploading at a different size. I dont know whats up with that, but I don’t have time to fix it now, I’m sure blogger just changed some setting that I’ll have to figure out how to change back. Note: So this whole thing is fixed now. Blogger is still re-sizing my photos, but as a work around, if I just upload straight into Picasa web they come out the right size.

So I’m sorry the post is a little screwed up today.

I ended up not redoing the boots. I just stuffed in more green foam. I cut little openings in the side so I could pile it on the tops of the feet. I think the boots looks good enough at this point.

Shelley - Link brought up a great point in the comments yesterday, about ‘what doesn’t show’ on film. Its something I’ve noticed myself. So many little details never even show up once its seen through a camera lens. The boots aren’t going to be the star of the show … and like I said, they’re good enough .

Other than that, I just continued painting the boots, the left one is 100%. Hopefully tomorrow I'll finish them both up.

I was thinking yesterday...how much of the boots are going to be seen?....But didn't like to say!

There are to many things to sap your energy even in a small stop mo short.

Oh and I hope you find your camera

HOORAY! Good move, Jeff! GOGOGOGO!

Justin has made many films now and has oh, 1,000 times the experience I have, so I've been trying to "see" the corners that CAN be cut through his eyes.

And I am also very aware that these stop motion projects are a bit more than film entertainments alone. They are also nothing less than personal works of art. That move.

OMG, what are we doing?!!! It's mad!

Thanks Shelley, I agree they're everything from sculpture to painting, to performance art ... to a bunch of other stuff. Its crazy!

Thanks Justin!
