...... is patient




oder "Papier ist geduldig"

For some of my dear friends on Flickr, who don't fold and are curious of how the folding takes place, I decide to photograph some steps, to reveil "the secret", no just kidding ;-), it's really so nice to know you are interested.

First I cut out a hexagon out of a piece of paper, sometimes out of a square, sometimes out of a rectangle and then I start to make/fold the division of the grid that I need. This is somewhere in between......I still have to do a lot.

I used very thin paper with plenty of fiber, as you can see.... there is a very big one........ Because I wanted to see if I could tessellate this kind of paper...., always like a challenge........ to be continued.

This wrinkled paper texture (ty lisabee73) I thought fitting for this sky image taken outside of Barnes & Nobles Book Store on Wolf Rd in Albany,NY.

Orange washi paper served as background & is refracted in the drops. So is some rumpled-up coral fabric. I guess I should have removed it. Too late now.

A late HMM to All!

WESTZAAN - The Schoolmaster is the last paper mill in the world that on wind power works. The mill was originally built in 1692 and is still in daily use. There is Zaansch plate, a paper type, manufactured. The owner is since 1976 the Association Zaansche mill. The mill is hexagonal, a rarity, only seven other mills in Netherlands also have a hex socket construction.


WESTZAAN - De Schoolmeester is de laatste papiermolen ter wereld die op windkracht functioneert. De molen werd oorspronkelijk in 1692 gebouwd en is tegenwoordig nog dagelijks in gebruik. Er wordt op ambachtelijke wijze Zaansch Bord, een papiersoort, vervaardigd. De eigenaar is sinds 1976 de Vereniging De Zaansche Molen. De molen is als zeskant opgetrokken, een zeldzaamheid, slechts zeven andere molens in Nederland hebben ook een zeskante constructie.

"Now what do I do

With the sweet love of mine

Do I give it away and

Hope someday I'll find

Someone half as awake

As the moon and the stars

Mother, teach me to love

With a paper-thin heart"


Happy 10th Anniversary, Macro Monday, and many more decades to come!

Here's a colorful garland for the party!

Just a small portion of my envelope collection. View more of my paper collection here: :)

A group of paper wasps built their impressively hexagonal nest on the wall near the garage door in Bridgetown. They were very busy feeding their larvae and not too worried about me getting close so I was able to get a few interesting shots. Sadly the following day I saw some ants had found the nest and were crawling all over it - the wasps seemed very reluctant to do anything about the ants.

a shot not posted when the MM theme was paper

With a bird taking off in the foreground, this shot of the moon in New York was just crying out for the paper effect!

Close up shot a curled up paper. Very happy with the result, has a abstract feel to it.

at a store selling paper replica's of things to burn for the dead in hong kong i found an album of the custom made objects the store has sold.
