I haven’t shared this yet, but you might have seen the button in my side bar. I am taking Kat Sloma’s Find Your Eye e-course. It is a short course and designed to help train your photography eye. The price is great, only $29. I have to admit, Kat is stretching me intellectually with her exercises. I have never thought of my feelings of a subject while I was photographing or even editing it. I just don’t think that way.
Well Kat is having us look at familiar things around us. I followed some of the guidelines for this assignment, but I didn’t take pictures of something I usually take pictures of. I did take pictures of something I see and use multiple times a day and never paid attention to the fact it might be beautiful.
I am talking about a bottle brush.
I am serious. I have used one of these everyday for the past 5 years. Either to clean bottles or sippy cups. I really kind of loathe these things by now.
I have never noticed the potential beauty in them. Yes, I said beauty in a bottle brush. I took shots from all sorts of angles. There are varying textures on a bottle brush, too. It was neat to focus on each of them. Ultimately this one was my favorite shot.
I think it is kind of cool. Would I print it and hang it on my wall? Umm, I don’t think so. But it sure is neat.
