Hidden Treasures

14 December 2010

Sometimes you can really surprise yourself with what you can get out of your little digital camera. The following photos I took one day and it required no fancy cameras or software! The subject of these photos are completely everyday things- curtains, sky, fence, blinds and bamboo.
Winter Waves
Definitely one of my favourites...
Bright blue sky
Not so ordinary
Rainbow
Shutter
Through the blindsBamboo
Loving the sparkles...
So how did I get these photos of everyday things to turn out so abstract? Well...my mom saved a whole bunch of crystals off an old chandelier that belonged to my grandma. I picked one up and the sudden idea of experimenting with photos popped into my head.

Pretty cool huh?

  1. These are some of the coolest pictures ever and so unique because I imagine it would be hard to get these shots again.

  28. Interesting!
    My sis buys nerdy lens for weird pictures. I remember my head was "duplicated" a millionth times... thought that'd be how I look like in the eyes of mosquitoes.
    I did something similar once using a glass cup with some tea debris inside whilst having dinner. My friends love it =)

  36. Pretty cool? Try VERY cool! That fragmented, psychedelic effect makes for a really captivating photo. Hope you enjoyed your weekend and you have a wonderful week ahead x

  37. Hey, that is pretty cool! It reminds me a bit of looking at leaves through the trees on a sunny day - all that dappled light. It's got a real Virgin Suicides vibe, which is always excellent.

    ReplyDelete

    Love taking pics through sunglasses too- there's another one to try out!

  48. These pictures are really interesting and also quite festive! The third one down looks like lots of little Christmas trees, unless that is actually what it is haha!! I love how you can take pictures of everyday objects and make them appear so interesting.
