    When I was a kid, I really enjoyed folding paper into art. The years brought more things I wanted to do, and I forgot how relaxing it was to focus on this little task. I recently started to get back into it (I'm making them for the wife), and figured that I should photograph the journey as my skill starts to increase.

    Anyway, here are three days worth to start off.

    All with the E-M5 and PL25

    I loved origami as a kid, had quite the collection of papers and books. Thanks for sharing. Love your shots and reminiscing. :smile:

    Spent a couple hours working on a piece yesterday, but near the end, I realized that the paper I selected was too small to make the last dozen folds. A bit frustrating, so I stuck with an old classic to finish something.
