    Those aren’t silly at all. They’re well-composed and well-focused and pleasant to look at. I’m trying to improve my photography, which is good because there is so much room for improvement. I even bought an expensive camera to prove my dedication to the craft. Funny thing is, the camera has this irritating thing called a “manual” and I go to pieces at the mere thought of reading a manual.

    Thank you, penseroso! I must admit it’s fun taking photos of every day items that normally don’t even get a second glance from us.

    Kudos to you for investing in a new camera – I’m anxious to see more of your photos now that you’ve revealed this tid bit of info. Manuals of any kind always cause me to break out in a cold sweat so I understand completely.

    fabulous photos! I love the way you are looking at objects now, unusual and away from routine!

    Bravo girl! For your new photographic mind, I promise to celebrate it!

    I don’t agree that they are bad pictures. the apple photo is actually very interesting both in form and achieved colour range… and of course because i find those apples tasty, so that goes far beyond than any other aesthetic apreciation I can ever make: my beauty “logic” is confused by my taste and desire of eating the apples. 🙂

    enjoy life

    I love the way that your photos relate to each other. Random stacking of organic fruit, symethrical arrangement of wine glasses. Both beautiful in composition.

    I also liked the one you did of the raindrop the other day. I’m very interested in close-ups and macrophotography (that’s what it’s called, but shouldn’t it be “microphotography”?).

    I’ve done some photos of land- and cityscapes, buildings, people, the water and mountain views, but you can postcards of things like that. Searching out ordinary objects and making them look extraordinary, however, is what’s most interesting to me.

    Hey Natural High,

    Thanks, it’s nice to see you back. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

    Penseroso, I was thrilled to finally catch a raindrop since they happen to attract me for whatever reason. When do we get to see some of your photographs? (tapping foot)
    Really, I bet your photos are lovely so please share them with us.

    I’ve got the link to my flickr photos at the bottom of my sidebar. There must be around 40 of them up there.
