363/365 – Simply spoons
I can’t believe the day is nearly over. I’m still sitting at my computer some four hours after I originally started. It wasn’t my intention to spend the entire afternoon on it – I’m rather fed up now to say the least, but it just sort of happened. The whole point of my afternoon was to try and compile the final picture for the project. As I knew it was going to take a bit of work, and that I’m out all day and all night on New Year’s Eve, I wanted to make sure it was all ready to go. As we approach the end of the project, my mind has been constantly thinking how to suitably end it without just posting a ‘normal’ picture as it were. I have to say, these last few days I’ve felt rather stressed at the thought of it, knowing that I haven’t got much time to finish it due to other commitments, but thankfully I think we’re now on track. We can all breathe a sigh of relief.
Like I said yesterday, I’ve been trying to make sure the last few images are one’s I’m pleased with as I’m sure the ones at the start, and the end are the images that people are more likely to remember rather than the mass of those in the middle. I’ve been wracking my brain once again for a suitable subject and with the rain throwing it down outside, it had to be an indoor project. Originally, I tried to compose an image using skittles, drops of water and a little refraction. Whilst the initial results were pleasing, they weren’t of the quality I wanted and so I’ve shelved that idea for the time being. I shall come back to it when I’m not under any pressure to create an image. (Make sure you stay subscribed to the blog to see my newest images throughout 2013!) Instead, I’ve gone for a more subtle subject. I chose to photograph some spoons which I think is rather appropriate considering we’ve all probably been stuffing ourselves silly with Christmas pud this last week or so, or some other dessert if like me you’re not a fan!
