I’ve decided to start 2014 off by committing to taking at least one photo per day.  While I also want to commit to more regular blog posting, it certainly won’t be on a daily basis.  Today, I didn’t feel like heading out into the drizzly afternoon, and found myself wondering what photographs of my chandelier would turn out like.  Standard photos, it turn out, are not interesting at all, and only serve to remind me of how much I need to dedicate an afternoon to cleaning it.

The chandelier in my apartment close up… dust and all.

The thing I like so much about this light fixture is the way it throws tiny rainbows over the walls and within the fixture itself, depending on the vantage point.  When I stopped trying to have sharp focus on the fixture, but instead concentrated on capturing the colours, shapes and textures, I liked the results a lot more.

There is still a hint of what this is, as the individual pieces of glass can be seen top left, but the colours are much more vibrant when the focus is reduced.

When I removed all focus, I liked the results the best 🙂

I love the tear-drop shape towards the centre of this photo.

When the focus is gone, it is all about shaw and colour.  I love how saturated the blues are.
