It's been an odd sort of week. Random and strange. The weather has gone from hot and sunny to wet and gale-force winds!

On Thursday I spotted my doppelganger (double), driving in a car in front of me. For a moment I thought it was me I was looking at in his side mirror until I realised it wasn't. It was bizarre - kind of like having an outer body experience - especially since, from all angles he looked like me! There should be an unwritten social law that if you do spot your double, you should at least say hello and take a photo together.

Then Tursday night I was privileged to attend the Launch of the Adelaide Festival for 2008. It looks exciting and there's some stuff including a Leonard Cohen & Phillip Glass performance that looks awesome. Am also going to push for getting UniversalOne (city designers I'm aligned with) to do some light projections onto surrounding exterior space for a combined city project. It'll be interesting to see the facades of buildings along North Terrace lit up and have artwork projected across them.

Last night I met a few nice people at one of this nice little parties where everyone gathers in the kitchen. I had a great night - the first in a while. I wasn't expecting to really, as I didn't know too many people there. I'm just suffering a bit today though!

I'm getting healthy again which is good. I think it comes with the expectation of summer!

And last night I dreamt I was homeless.

Phillip Glass! Wish I was there for it. I have been a huge fan for years but I always miss out on stuff. Saw Einstein on the Beach. That was a wonderful experience.

Thanks for your comments on our blog. Yeah, the 'miniature' photos are real things but I've simulated a variable focus lens by using the lens blur effect and the feather tool in photoshop. The photos are shot with the intention of creating this kind of image. The ones that work best are shot from above looking down at about 45 degrees. That way it makes choosing a selective focal field simpler. Eventually I wanna buy a variable focus lens.

I really like your blog. Lots of food for thought. Thanks. I'll be sure to keep checking it.

cheers
