My dad just started a blog at shedengineering.blogspot.com. He is a retired electronics engineer and boatbuilder. He lives in Plymouth and he is always working on some interesting project or other in his shed. I've always been impressed by his skill and workmanship. Recently he has made a beautiful Stevenson screen and a Wasp Trailing Log Spinner which measures the speed a boats.
Photo from ebay. The screen is not currently in use.
My little (17 yr old) sister, Milly, also blogs at asensibleheart.blogspot.com, about her life and inspiration as a photographer. She really has an eye: she sees beautiful images surrounding her in her everyday life that most people would just pass by. I never fail to be inspired by her work.
Links to both of their blogs are down in my 'other blogs' section.
