As I might have mentioned, I find myself home a lot these days. Work and home and the occasional trip to the grocery store is about all I seem to do. Well, at least that's what it feels like. So I find myself searching for items to take photos of that are interesting and creative. To be honest, this project has stretched my creativity I think. In a good way.
Take today's photo for example. Who'd have thought that my blinds would become so fascinating? Well, they did to me as I sat and stared at the play of shadows against light. I was so intrigued I started snapping photographs and fell for this one.
I think I like it so much because at first glance you can't really tell what you're looking at. And even though you can see a peek of the outside world slipping through, there's no hint as to what it truly is.
I did do some post processing on this shot - Black and White filter (which isn't a very far stretch from the original color version), Noise reduction and tweaked the sharpness.
