  2. I really love your beauty scope photos. I enjoy taking these kinds of photos too only I am not as mobile as I would like to be. I am looking forward to improving and getting out more with my camera.

    1. No sisal is different again. NZ flax is totally different to your flax. It was used to make clothes and ropes and baskets etc. for Maoris. I learnt flax weaving when over there. The ropes made from this flax were used in the British Royal Navy. Very famous.
