Thursday 's Challenge

I was feeling unusually relaxed a few days ago and pondering how I seldom take photos just for the sake of making good images.  Most often I only get the cameras out when I have an assignment or when I want to record and event.

So, I decided to challenge myself by finding things within 10 feet of my breakfast spot that I could make into good images. It's sort of a challenge I'd give myself back when I was a photo student. 

Right in front of me I noticed my spread-out cloth napkin and coffee mug looked nice.

Then I noticed a bowl of garlic on a nearby counter.

Lastly, I noticed knives on a magnetic rack --this one is my favorite.
