I’ve always liked photography, but in 2006, I fell in love with it. At that time, snapping photos—macro photos—suddenly became an uncontrollable obsession. Why, you wonder? In that year, my right retina detached twice. The eye was saved, but my vision will never again be as “good” as it was. I use macro photography to see again.
When I was a little girl, this is the mug I drank my Nana’s homemade hot chocolate from. Those were the days!
Back in July, when this bottle was emptied, I wanted to take a photo of it. I wasn’t able to do it at the time—the lighting sucked, and (maybe, or maybe not) I was a little tipsy. So… I stashed the bottle in my desk where it sat and waited, and waited, and waited some more, for a day with “dark and moody” light.
Today’s photo is inspired by Momma April. And, yes, I am one of the 67,718 people currently logged in to Animal Adventure Park’s live Giraffe Cam. In fact, I’ve been logged in for days hoping to witness a 6′, 150lb bundle of joy enter the world. Dear Lord, will this poor girl’s labour ever end?!
Ahhh… That moment of relief at the end of the day.
I’ve moved from plastic to glass, but I did stick with my (mostly) monochrome theme of the week with this shot taken through the mouth of a vase.
