I took this photo for this week’s Photo Challenge, on the theme of Light & Darkness. It’s an unusually opaque bottle of wine (Fragolino, actually) backlit by a softbox. The camera was moved slightly to one side to pick up some of the reflection on the side of the bottle. The annoying mark on theContinue reading “Light & darkness”
Yes, it’s a boring shot of some felt tip pens in their packet. But I love how the rainbow colours line up! It’s also a really fancy packet, where the lid folds round and clicks into place as a stand, to hold the pens in this position. This appeals to my geek side.

These yellow roses were in a vase in my parents’ living room. The room wasn’t dark at all – the sun was streaming in the window but the roses were brighter than their background.
