I wanted to try out a few shots of a spider, while backlit by a sunset. It’s a fairly common orb weaver.
I finally attempted the now-well-known camera modification that involves replacing the IR filter in a digital camera with a piece of developed film — blocking visible light. It’s an interesting use for an otherwise obsolete camera.
I made a swing chair for my porch out of a Scandinavian recliner (that I’d picked up secondhand), some 3/4″ EMT conduit, 2 hose clamps, and about 20 feet of rope.
The rest is just knots.
This grasshopper does a convincing job of looking like a piece of stone.
TinyLittleLife now uses a responsive layout, for improved viewing on your portable devices (and mine).

Although it looks ugly, this PVC bushing is one part of a fairly watertight (although only tested to 4 meters) electronics housing made from a 3″ PVC tube. Water did not enter through the wires, the epoxied section, nor the rubber seal.
I built a pen from scratch on my new lathe and mill.
I rounded the top corners and stained my soldering toolbox. It’s a combination of two stain colors, to try and match the look of a Wilton bullet vise.
