Assignment 'Floor'

I know the focus of this photo is the pair of boots but I like the hardwood floors as the backdrop.  I also shot in 'high key' purposely.  I like the bright side of the photo.  I know it isn't typically the desired effect; however, in this case it was the look I wanted.

Junk Drawer Sculpture

After opening my kitchen, junk drawer I immediately saw all the circular objects within.  The small flashlight, also circular, was the gem!  No flash, kitchen light and flashlight on, the image was made.  No manipulation whatsoever other than cropping.  I count nine circles and some triangles too!

Assignment 'Leaning'

 Assignment 'lean' was easy once I spotted my house plant desperately leaning toward light.  Incidentally, my new table is perfect for 'what if' thinking.  It is difficult to see the leaning that I am doing in the photo below but I am doing so as I wake with a stiff back.

Buy My House?

This week I was to photograph one room in my house that a realtor might use to sell the house.  I live in a pretty small home and taking photos, without distorting shape, was challenging.  Also, my house is bright for most of the day therefore I could not avoid the bright windows.  If I waited until afternoon the living room would be too dark and I would need to use flash. I did the assignment though!  Two weeks in a row!

Time To Read

My first baseball, a photography book, hiking book and a motivational read adorn my bookshelf.  Let me not forget to mention my George W. Bush Memoir.  I wanted to create a 'dark/shadowy' feeling above and a 'cool/funky' one below.
