Balanced - Helen's journal and online home
In which an old dog attempts to learn new tricks.
2/52 for the 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge group

This week's theme was: B is for Bulge

This arrangement was inspired by a LiveJournal friend's post that linked to a video showing some really impressive rock balancing. As I happened to have a little collection of rocks on the window sill, I thought I'd have a go. To my surprise -- and counter-intuitively -- I found it easier to balance the rocks that were bulgy and irregular rather than those that were more rounded and even in shape.

As soon as we get some decent weather, I want to visit a river or the beach and try this again. It's strangely absorbing.


Current Mood: thoughtful intrigued

I'm going to watch some of that chap's How To videos. We have lots of rocks around here that are just asking to be balanced on top of one anotehr!

And you've managed that without glue?

I did indeed! No glue was involved. It took a bit of concentration, but was easier than I expected. By which I mean, I didn't expect I'd be able to do it at all. :)

I saw her great post on balance! This is amazing what you did, I would have to use glue ;-)
