Seeing what’s right in front of me – literally!

I’ve spent an awful lot of time at my desk recently and this week has been no exception. So it was a struggle thinking of an image for Sally’s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge.

As is usual when I’m working silly hours, I’ve drunk a lot of coffee. I drink lattes and I’m quite fussy about them — particularly about the amount of froth I like on the milk (not much). After a particularly good cup, I noticed a little ring of milky bubbles around my glass. That’s what you see above and below — edited in various ways, because I’ve needed distraction.

In just over a month the project I’ve been working on for the past year and a half will be over and my focus will turn outward again. Until that happens, I’m taking pleasure in the small, unexpected pleasures of seeing the minutiae of my world.

    • Thanks Alex; I’m a real fan of woodcuts. I do feel a bit guilty that since I’ve found the app, I’m less likely to go and learn how to do them in “real life” — which was one of my art objectives for next year. Oh well, perhaps glass casting? πŸ™‚
