I just painted the pillars on my house this week but this is much more creative. Plus I'm in love with that little half-ladder. All in all, stellar work, sir!

Ula O cealleigh says:
hi all.

yes this is an abandoned mill. :)
i could not paint on the side of the occupiers house at beard street manchester , so i made my own mini beard street.

a few things .....
1 .i would do the full banner if i could get the paint, time and weather.
2. after work.. it is dark. period. it has been raining for the last 2 weeks more or less without really drying up much. and it has been VERY windy.

i had to go there and do a little bit every day.
had to take a power generator up there to see properly at dark with a lamp, and back a van upto the wall to shield it from wind & rain.

I final went up there the morning to set up everything else for the shot.. the street sign, ladders, bring the clothes ect, ect.

it was not easy. but i think i may be up for doing the full banner mabe for the final day we will see.

its very difficult to fit these photos into the whiskerino schedule but i do it AS BEST POSSIBLE. if i had more time i would do it neater, better and not forget things like shoes & stuff. but that goes for all of us we only have limited time.

every single day i have ideas for the upcoming themes as well as my own ideas & its a matter of getting things required as the week progresses. if you plan ahead you can pretty much get an ok photo even if its not quite as good as you woulda liked it to be.

like for example yesterday running into a very windy field & getting your mate to look like an idiot holding a door while you are holding a cupboard door looing even more stupid while people are driving past thinking you are fly tipping. lol. but when you have an idea & it seems good at the time & guess you just go & do it. lol

Ula O cealleigh says:
9schwander i have no reason to want to top americans, you guys created this awesome whiskerino entity i am proud to be part of it.

i am only trying to better "myself" my album & score from last time.
i cant think of anything worse than winning this thing. i just like to be up there fighting it out in the action so to say. I love the fact whiskerino has re-lit my competitive spirt that kinda went dull in other areas of my life like in sports, ect. :)
