Fun with "stuff"


I'm participating in a weekly assignment with some other photographers, and this week's assignment was "creative angles." Here's my new favorite "thing" shot (my old favorite was an old bean poler (farm equipment) abstract taken with my ancient minolta film camera (no longer with me...gosh was that thing heavy!).

Hey ladies! Of course you can join the assignment fun! I don't like to make bus. references on here, but EMAIL ME and I'll explain/link. Otherwise, I can post them here too!

This week's assignment was CREATIVE ANGLES and you have to have 3 different subjects. Not terribly difficult at all. :)

On the flower one, I actually did a lot of pping, which is unusual for me. I used Tammy's Vintage Urban action and some burning. I try to use the KISS method with just about everything in my life, hence the no actions, but I took this image with that particular action in mind, and it worked!

Thanks all! I'm glad you like it :) It is the only knick knack type thing I happen to have in the house, and my pansies are just about done, so I used it!
