"A Spectacle(s)"


Brushing my teeth this morning, I noticed a shadow that my glasses were making as they sat on the toilet-tank. Not the most beautiful setting; however, the shiny white tank did a nice job of reflecting the lenses. The light is from the kitchen and so it was diffused nicely and came into the bathroom at an angle (high to low and right to left). Next, I played with the contrast and added "noise" from my filter selections to give the same object a slightly different look.

Glowing edges added even more drama to the image below, completing my series. I like finding the image of the day early...makes the rest of the day so much more relaxing! This series again reinforces for me the idea that a picture can be found when you least expect it.

Super job of taking the "ordinary" and turning it into the "extraordinary"!!! Love them all...especially the last image. Is "glowing edges" the name of the filter? Please tell me how you did that...it's great!!!

I can't figure out which one I like the best. The black and white sort of reminds me of an old detective money like the Maltese Falcon or something. Very hip!
