“From Day to Night and back again…”

After a day of rain, grey skys, windy weather and more rain it was nice to come home to a bit of relaxation and warmth! So I snapped a few shots of a random object in the hopes it would provide enough for a blog today, and it does, thankfully!

With a jacket potato in the oven and baked beans almost simmering on the hob (they will be soon) it’s one of those perfect wintery evenings when all that’s left to do…is finish an essay that’s due in on Wednesday. Damnit!

I love Photography because if you’re desperate enough for a shot – like I am sometimes when doing the photo a day challenge – you’ll see something you’ve shot before in a completely different light. It’s mind-blowing when that happens. Especially if you’re busy and haven’t the time to be inspired.

Inspiration can hit when the sun breaks through the clouds and shines on an object – today that was a piece of jewellery I’d found whilst sorting out. So I dug around for some matching bits, grabbed the very fine fishing wire and ten minutes later I had my shots.

I also like the way my camera adds a shiny ping to the images when the sun bounces off of them – sort of like the cheesy smile flash! It’s quite good like that, in the right lights. Lens flare – amateur but looks pretty!
