I??ve been busy today making a start on tidying our spare room ready for when our friend Yulia comes to stay in a couple of days. As I did so I found lots of boxes of old photos which, of course, had to be looked at, and I found many happy memories of my film photography days. The downside of all this tidying was the amount of dust it kicked up so I??ve also spent a large part of the day sneezing violently! By 5 o??clock this evening I??d had enough sneezing and realised I still hadn??t take my daily photo. I thought I should give my hired macro lens another workout while I??ve still got it so I decided to shoot one of the tiny pegs (about two centimetres long) which we use to hang our Christmas cards. I lit it using a small LED torch but got the white balance slightly wrong. I intended to change it to the correct setting in Lightroom but after doing so I decided that I actually preferred it with that slightly surreal blue glow!
Pausing briefly between trips down memory lane... and sneezes!
