I'm back from my ten days away visiting family and friends. I saw lots of wonderful people in old familiar places, and had several fun photo opportunities which you'll see over time. But not today. Today's post is one I already had prepped but somehow left it in draft mode. I'll get around to visiting some blogs soonish. There were over 500 posts sitting in my Feedly feed. Ack! I'll just have to catch up with the most current posts.. eventually. Now onto this one.
The pictures are there, and you just take them.
In case you hadn't noticed, it's winter around here. That, along with a problematic back is limiting the number of photo opportunities to be found outdoors. So what better way to remedy that than by wandering around with the camera indoors. I switched out the lens for a marcro lens and began focusing on some of the items around the house. Some of the subjects will be pretty obvious upon first sight but some might need a bit of an explanation or an additional photo to clarify.
Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day so we'll just have to start out with something green.
Here's something you might see at a kid's party if you don't fancy the idea of doing much cleanup afterward. Or if you don't fancy being fancy.
Here's another view at the bottom end of the packet. They're plastic spoons, knives (left and right in the top photo) and forks.
If you're like me, you get your morning boost from the same place I do. The camera is peering inside a large tin of ground coffee.
If you should run out of coffee filters, a piece of paper towel can come to your rescue.
And this here is the breakfast of champions - if you happen to have feathers and wings.
No need to get overly picky about this closeup.
Just grab one and put it to good use... you have some spinach stuck in your teeth.
They help to freshen the breath while having the added bonus of a Valentine's Day sugar rush - cinnamon hearts. In the interest of true disclosure, I can not for the life of me ever remember how to spell cinnamon. I mangle it so badly that even my computer's built in dictionary throws up its little arms and stares back at me blankly. Good old Google comes to the rescue and doesn't even laugh at my sad attempt. It just calmly replies with "Did you mean cinnamon?" Yes, I did indeed.
This isn't a storm over the lake. Or a snapshot of something on TV. I think I might have guessed the latter if I didn't know what it was.
It's a closeup of something my son gave me for Christmas. Its ever-changing picture can be quite soothing to watch.
It sits on the bookshelf in my bedroom just waiting to be flipped over to start again and you can tell by the smudgy finger prints that it's been flipped many time. Thanks, Alex!
I was intrigued with how this turned out up close and took a few snapshots of it.
I never would have guessed that all those fibres would show up like that. The bright sunlight helped to illuminate them.
A different view from the front.
I haven't read it yet. If any of you have, you can let me know what you thought. Failing that, perhaps I'll let you know if I enjoyed it, once I'm done.
More photos coming up soonish.
