Oct 22: 'Rainbow'

The weather was a bit sh... poor today and there was a distinct lack of Rainbows..
Luckily the little people bailed me out again (they could have chosen the non-luminous Plasticine though).

* Best viewed with your eyes closed.
Great shot - at least you found your plasticine - I couldn't find my crayons!

brilliant idea

This is brilliant! I don't know where you get so many brilliant ideas, you're so creative!!
posted October 22nd, 2012  
Very creative. How come your plasticine isn't brown and grubby like mine? Love this :)

@rosiekind - You will never guess where it was Rosie.

@pandorasecho - Thanks Dixie, because of the vivid colors, it was really tricky getting a good focus.

@monkeykid - I think he is looking at the plans :)

@cookie123 - It's not as good as I hoped (see reply to Dixie above). Thanks for showing my bits off Bernadette.

@bazza - Thanks Bazza

@suebarni - and thank you Sue and not a hint of My Little Pony anywhere...

@roachling - It is weird, on the way home from work this evening, I had no idea what to do. It was not till I found the Plasticine that the story started to evolve... Whoops, what I meant was, I just got home and the little people were making this...

Beautiful Sir - they have done a fine job for you. Any gold in that there pot?

@streetlyend - One of my friends at work brought it for me and this is only the second time it has been used (thank you Annette)

@filsie65 - Yes, and it is all mine.

Your little people really need to review their safety in the workplace practices. That poor little bloke in the brown top has got himself crushed again! He can't have been back to work very long since the last time it happened: http://365project.org/gphelps5/365/2012-10-03 and all the rest ignored the poor fella again!

Great fun idea and set up as ever,Graham!

At least the bloke in the yellow hard hat is trying to lift it off him this time Alison.

Amazed as always! Is the rainbow vertical? If so, extra kudos points (to the bits) for getting it to stay up. One does wonder why you need a pickaxe for plasticine, but I'm sure there is a plausible explanation!
posted October 22nd, 2012  
Oooh, yeah! Sorry, little bloke in yellow - I wuz doin' you down!
posted October 22nd, 2012  
goodness you remembered the rhyme...'read out your green book of verse' well done........love the pot of gold.what are the 3balls/ boulders, sorry ,at the end? what on earth does your wife make of all this?!!
posted October 22nd, 2012  
They are cutting the ends off the Rainbow with the pick axe and spades, I got home before they had time to finish... and yes, the rainbow is vertical, they stuck it up with burly-builders dust.

Haha, 'best viewed with your eyes closed...!' This is so delicious I just want to savour it! Your imagination knows no bounds, and today's word was pretty impossible, go bulldog!!!!!
posted October 22nd, 2012  
@fannyb - Oh come on, you should know how my (their) minds work by now... The the balls are the rolled up off cuts from the rainbow. It is ball like this, that give IKEA their inspiration for furniture, hence the chap from Sweden sitting on one. (and Mrs Bulldog had to sing the song to me, she loves it!)

@maggiemae - Ha ha ha, welcome to my world... There have been quite a few of them... If you have time, have a look at http://365project.org/tags/little-people

@egad - Thanks, I'm here all year...

When life gives you lemons...make your own rainbows? Works for me. Hey, isn't that a pot of gold on the side that no one has mentioned??
posted October 22nd, 2012  
Great idea making for a super shot!
posted October 22nd, 2012  
@danette - Too true Danette. Fanny mentioned the Pot of Gold, but we all know she is as mad as a hatter..

@rhos - Thanks Ann, I really could not get the focus right though..

Oh oh. OSHA needs to be called in. Looks like there's been an industrial accident with the purple.

@deburahiru @joluise @ladyjane

@lynnb - Ooo thanks Lynn, I think he is reading the instructions. I was not that happy with this as the colours were so strong, it made it difficult to get the focus right.

@webfoot - You may be right Paul.

@aleksandra - Thank you Aleksandra and thanks for the Fav. It was no bother, they had nearly finished by the time I got home from work.

Fabulous - one thing I'm interested to know is how much time you spend on each photo for 365???!!!!!
posted October 23rd, 2012  
Too long is the simple answer.. This one took about an hour (or two), todays duck about two hours of my time to get 2 or three pics..
The robots take me about three evenings to make...
