You Capture - Up Close

Saturday, September 19, 2009
My friend Erin showed me this neat blog called I Should Be Folding Laundry. In it are weekly photo challenges to try to get you to find new and different ways to take photos. It's a fun game, and I hope it makes me get out the camera a bit more.

This week's challenge is to get up close and photograph things ... well, up close. I know I'm supposed to be taking new photos, but this challenge reminded me of some photos I took a few months ago and promptly forgot about. I actually liked them quite a bit, but I never did anything with them - I didn't even bother putting them online. So this week's challenge made me put these up for all to see, for better or for worse.

One of Goomba's squeeky balls.

The innards of a paper shredder.

Shredded paper. The poor focus was accidental, but I think I actually prefer it - it makes the photo seem old. Or maybe I'm looking for excuses for my own screw-up.

The focus on the shredded paper doesn't look at all like a screw-up, I loved it best in this set. :) Awesome photos!
