    I had to come up with something to keep me busy on days with boring weather and I found the idea of a 365 project a bit too simple... So here is number 1 in a new series:

    'Paper Boat'

    One of three 'Paper Boats' on a roundabout near my home:

    Small modification. Someday soon I'll have to actually put it on the water, I'm dreading that moment...

    The boat has shrunk a bit since yesterday's adventure... The pristine image quality is thanks to my new Holga plastic lens. :D

    these are with the Holga lens as well, the boat seems to be very photogenic with that lens, I think they're a good match. First one with GF2 and second one with GF1. I'm liking the GF2 more and more, the only thing stopping me from giving up my GF1 is the remote input.

    I'm still not tired of making photos of my paper boat, a new one each day. Some are last minute jobs but I won't mention which. :wink: Maybe I'll continue until I have 50 and then come up with a new daily theme. A lot of these are with the Holga lens (the ones with the obvious vignetting mostly).

    This is really lovely! The holga look is really cool for this images.
    I'm following you on Flickr for this images!

    Thanks! Yeah I really love the Holga for this.

    And I think I just realised something... New toys give a creativity boost and the sudden urge to take lots of photos. So it's important to just keep buying new things to play with to nurture that effect. :biggrin: That's why I ordered a set of filters for the Holga, hope they get here soon.

    Yeah, it's really important to have new ideas, not buying new toys and shoot brick walls just to tell your friends your toys is better than theirs (many camera-owners do that). You're a real photographer!

    I LOVE a good theme. Thanks for sharing. Did you also do that theme earlier with the little figure guy?

    Oh boy, this is great stuff :smile:. My favorites are #11, 12 and 17.
    Sorry for not participating - either I would get fired (if I do it at work), or the boat would be confiscated (by my daughter).

    Nope I've never done any theme before. Would love to see that one though, do you have a link?

    @zettapixel - thanks! :smile:
