For the past few weeks
all my spare time has been spent
doing the crafts I love.
My occupations have been full of tiny details
and precision which I really enjoy
I needed a fresh way of seeing - and the candlelight
and electric light plunged me into a world of sparkles and abstracts!
So I got out my macro lens and had enormous fun playing
with my focus to capture the abstract quality of well-known objects.
These sparkling threads, used for adding a festive touch
to crocheted creations, brought me into a world of scintillating wonder!
This has to be my favourite capture because we just recognize
what we are seeing
yet the abstract quality is there too.
And on these mostly grey November days
my world became alive again!
Gold and silver, red and blue
My basket of happiness!
I feel depth and vibrancy and swirling movements.
Don't they make you want to dance?
