Since buying a new macro lens I've been running around like Mr Magoo, getting up close to anything that might look interesting ... up close. The very first "test" shot was of a piece of lint on the chair. Believe me when I say that I've seen things through a microscope that didn't look as scary as that.
On our dining room table I have a bunch of decorator balls in a lovely large bowl. Why? Because they would roll off the table if they weren't in the bowl, of course! Ok, seriously, because they are interesting colors and textures, some glass, some not. The photo above is of one of the "not" glass; I guess it looks like burlap.
This week's Thematic Photographic has been such fun. But even more so, a learning experience! I now have a file of photos to "save" sans color, and a new appreciation for composition for the sake of light, not just color. Thanks, Carmi! Can we go back to something colorful next week? :-)
