I have decided that for the next four weeks I will explore the contents of my sewing table and cupboard. I’ve always enjoyed sewing, and over the years have gathered up a collection of "stuff" which, once I thought about it, has a few photographic possibilities. This week the button jar was sorted out, into colours (yes, really!) and types. I have some which I think belonged to my aunt and perhaps, via her, even my grandmother. I played around in Photoshop with blend modes and the free transform tool on a duplicate layer, and scrapped a couple of versions before finally being happy with this one. There was only one fancy white button amongst all the old shirt buttons in the jar, but I quite like the contrast, which seems to emphasise the plain ones just as it does the fancy one. I didn't recognise the fancy one, so maybe it was Grandma's.
Each week I'll publish a new image as part of a joint Project 52, with my friend in the USA. We both make an image every week, and send them to each other. We are now in the 2nd year of this project. We find it challenging, stimulating and fun. Life should be fun.
