This week I’ve dipped into the kitchen drawer. This gadget it used for scooping olives or pickled cherries, out of a container. I was washing it the other day after scooping the cherries out of a plastic container and noticed that the droplets of water on the metal were interesting. So I stacked up some containers, and rested the scoop on a couple of cans to put it into the sun light and used my 50mm macro on f2.5 to get the best bokeh. However once it was processed it was hard to find a suitable title. We came up with the title of “Light Bowl” and that was what I was going to post. I felt the title was better than the image, which didn’t seem right to me. I kept thinking about how to add something else to improve the image and tell a story, but couldn’t come up with anything suitable. When I looked at the first image I noticed that the top of the bowl had quite a lot of grain which did add something, but nothing quite clicked with it. Then I remembered the threshold slider. What would the grain do under that slider’s influence? Playtime. Bingo!
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.
