Backdrop experiments

Backdrop experiment:

As it is.
I'm not sure about the blue background. An idea occurred to me: the wall behind the layout is painted orange.

Perhaps I should cut out the Eiffel Tower and the buildings and attach them directly to the orange wall.

Here's a mock up of that idea.

Looks quite promising.

Currently listening to:

Last night's dinner:

Dover sole, black pudding and peas
Just about to start reading:

Miscellany Risqué:

In Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, Rupert Everett begins with memories of his very happy childhood. This passage is probably the funniest thing I've ever read. Even now, several weeks after my wife first read it out to me, I can't stop laughing.


"At about this time my mother took us boys aside and in serious tones warned us not to go into the woods above the farm because there was a funny man there who might take us to his house, give us sweets, put us on his kitchen table and play with our 'wees'. My brother looked horrified but I couldn't think of anything better. Travel, sweets and someone playing with my willy: I couldn't wait to trike up there."

By the way, because of the Rupert Everett connection and because of his brilliant descriptions of its making, we watched "My Best Friend's Wedding" on DVD last night.

In my case, I watched the opening titles and 3 minutes of the film itself: unbelievably mediocre.
