View Master

I have a bin with old cameras, lenses, and filters.  I only sort of knew what was in there, having been given a few over the years, and never having had a close look at some of the smaller items.

Yesterday, while trying to find my Gorillapod, I started opening the cases to see what was there.  I was thrilled to find a multi-image filter hidden in the bottom of one of the pockets, opening up whole new possibilities of surreal images.

I wiped away the dust and held the filter in front of my macro lens to see what it would look like.  This is one of the images I made:

I can’t wait until the gardens are in bloom – so many possibilities!

Mindfulness Challenge Week 12: Perspective

salt perspective

Salt

Photography is all about perspective (as is life).

Mundane objects can become surreal art through a macro lens.  Tiny details, normally overlooked, take on new possibilities when studied and appreciated.

The morning sun on the kitchen table changes colours, creates reflections, and lights up salt shakers.  Suddenly, salt is art.

Salt is also an accidental self-portrait…  Look closely.  🙂
