1000 Paper Cranes
It has been a busy week with many new cranes flying into my inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a new one by me. I love to read all your stories about the cranes it makes them so special to me.
Crane 0014 comes from Lima in Peru (South America) and was folded by Elsa. As you can see her crane is floating in the pool and I agree completely; what a wonderful peaceful place…!
Crane 0015 was folded by Karen from Vanilla scraps who lives in Canberra Australia. This is what she tells me about her crane
“I photographed my crane (the inside of a security envelope) in one of the parks by the lake in Canberra. It is called Lennox Gardens, it was going to be called the Nara Peace Park (Nara being Canberra’s twin city) but due to politics (last PM, don’t ask…), and has some lovely memorials here.”
Crane 0016 was sent to me by Nancy from floating ink who lives in . Here is the story about her crane
“This crane (folded from a tiny piece of rice paper) in a shadow box is the last page/inner back cover of a handmade book (my retelling of the crane wife tale) that I made for a friend last week before I saw your
call for cranes. More pictures of the book are posted on my blog floating ink
Crane 0017 was folded by me this afternoon, I took the picture at work on top of some feature lights with big patterns on them. It was folded from a very dark purple and black advertising I found in an old magazine that was in the recycling box.
