2009 Challenge – Day 42: Soda

12 Feb

2009 Challenge - Day 42: SodaI’m not a huge fan of soda-pop style soft drinks, but I am a fan of soda and tonic waters as mixers for drinks. This was in the fridge, so I thought it was appropriate for the day’s shot.

The background is our kitchen curtain,and you will probably notice a smudge or two on it – our cats rub up against it. I just noticed it in the enlargement! OOps.

I tried one series of shots of a vending machine, however during the day the reflection was very bad, and during the evening the light was terrible. I just couldn’t get it to work.

This morning I used the light from the kitchen window to get the high-colour, high-contrast that I think is seen here. It’s my own work, and this is what I was aiming to do with it. I hope I pulled it off.

2009 Challenge – Day 38: Orange

07 Feb

2009 Photo Challenge - Day 38: OrangeDriving was the theme of the day, with me go-karting in Malaysia.

Fortunately this photo turned out better than my arm, which was burned by both the sun and the go-kart. I have a nasty blister and a number of bruises, but I’ll live. The comfort level is not high at the moment – burns tend to hurt long after they happen (yes I want sympathy).

Orange was the word of the day, and this needle fit the bill, however the dial it was on has seen better days – almost 20 years of humidity has pitted the dashboard, which I thought was an interesting effect.
