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.
