Heath Robinson..... by carole_sandford

Heath Robinson.....

...... was mentioned yesterday in a conversation between Phil & Jackie, when discussing Phil’s first attempt at capturing a water crown. Phil & had both decided on this for the 52 week challenge, which this week encourages participants to do something that they have always wanted to try.
This is my “ rig up” for taking today’s shot, just for interest!
In the UK, the term “Heath Robinson” entered the popular language during the 1914-18 war. A “Heath Robinson” contraption is perhaps most often used in relation to temporary fixes using ingenuity and what ever is to hand eg string, tape etc & this is undoubtedly linked to Britain’s shortages & the need to “ make do & mend” during the war years.
So interested to see and read this. Hubby got his iPad out last night and started showing me Heath Robinson cartoons, which he thinks are hysterical things. I'd never seen any of them before! Funny how a phrase can be part of the language yet you have no clue as to its origin.
Impressed with the shine on that cooker and those tiles!

@casablanca I had no idea he was a cartoonist ! It was your last sentence that me laugh out loud! I’m sure it wouldn’t pass close scrutiny!

Great set up - I'm very lazy at home and don't push myself at all. Hence I'm glad I joined the camera club!

@casablanca the national trust exhibited a load of his original artwork last year, he was also a proper, gifted and talented artist and cartoonist.

Blimey Carole, that's complicated
