January 8 - 2009 8/365

Okay, to make up for the previous two posts, I really put some thought into todays photos. I wanted texture and something different. I've taken snow, trees, and scrapbooking stuff.

Here is a rock. I believe it is 'fools gold' (iron pyrite). I've had it since I was very, very young. I loved it and kept it out on my dresser to show my friends my 'gold'. I love the texture and lines and ... all of it. It is sparkly and heavy and so full of detai and texture. That's what I love most; all of the angles and texture and color in one simple rock. A simple photo could never do it justice. I took several/many photos and played with the background.

I started out with playing with dop, but I really didn't like it that way. I added more light and went for a clean, sharp photo instead.

I LOVE this photo! You've captured textures, lines, shape, shadow, light, etc.

You've inspired me. Tomorrow I will take a picture of my Amethyst rock and hope it turns out as great as yours did!

Very cool pic. I have a chunk of fool'd gold in the garage that I'm going to have to pull out now!
And I'm going to take a photo of my vase full of small stones too!

Thanks for the great ideas!
