This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Geometric Shapes.
I had a few ideas for subjects involving extreme close-ups of everyday items even if it meant bending the definition of geometric shapes a little.
Knurling (the diamond pattern that provides a gripping surface) on a small aluminium torch (flashlight).
The weave of some of the polypropylene webbing I use for my home made camera straps. Looking at how much dust is trapped in it I’m thinking I should be washing the straps occasionally.
Now this one isn’t exactly an everyday item. In fact I would be very surprised if many people could identify this. It’s an anti slip silicone rubber material I used it to replace the leatherette on some of my Olympus camera bodies. It dramatically increases grip when wearing two pairs of gloves at -40°. It has lots of tiny “pimples” for texture covered with a very thin layer of something translucent and tacky that increases the grip still further.
Finally, not really a close-up but I couldn’t resist the graphic nature of this backlit fly swatter.
