Unusual Perspective on a Nail Brush

This is my day 6 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

This are the bristles of a used nail brush, the distorted bristles remind me of bacteria seen through a microscope.

Umbrella

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Umbrella.

When I read the prompt I thought of the umbrella on our patio table. We put it in the table in the spring and I don’t think it has been unfurled yet this year.

So I decided to shoot some abstracts of the folded umbrella. I started shooting them in monochrome but quickly switched to colour as I liked the contrast between the blue fabric of the umbrella and the green vegetation in the background.

CFFC: Doors, Drawers and Cabinets Knobs and Handles

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Doors, Drawers and Cabinets Knobs and Handles.

I had noticed the light from a table lamp catching these brass handles on a cabinet some time ago so this challenge was the incentive I needed to take a photo of them.

I kept the composition minimalist and the photo low key. I de-saturated the image a little and then added a vignette.

On the Hunt for Joy: Put Something Cute on your Desk

ThIs is my contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Put Something Cute on your Desk.

As seems to be the norm for me recently I went outside the box and then threw it away.

 

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Put Something Cute on your Desk

First off, these nicknacks are on a kitchen cupboard, my “desk” is an old fashioned Formica kitchen table. Two of these nicknacks, the antelope/gazelle and the “Rock Concert” date back to the early 1980s and have survived something like eight house moves and one change of continents. The kingfisher is from the mid 1980s so probably one less house move. It’s lost its bill at some point.
