These are my recent attempts at close-up shots — just ordinary shots of the shutters in my family room.
Inspired by the excellent photo blogs I’ve recently visited and studied, I’m walking around my little condo shooting close-ups of just about everything I see: my glasses, a camera lens, candles, rocks, a nearly empty beer bottle, a few fragments of salsa, a chip, the dog, a flashlight, window shutters, a red box from China, a book or two, the refrigerator light, the worn desk top …. BUT WAIT! I have papers to GRADE! I’d take a picture of the pile of papers to show you, but then, I’ll get involved with shooting, then processing, and probably editing … and before I blink my eyes, I’m looking at midnight yet again. 5 AM comes awfully early when I’ve whiled away my evening doing what I want instead of working. Good night, all.
