This tiger (about 5" tall) and the brass dog are two of the few, maybe only items, that I have treasured and carried about more than six decades. They represent so many memories, and so many adventures. The bare threads of life showing. I'll carry them to the end.
Hello dear Framers! This week we're going to be looking hard and close at the finer points of your world. The details that evoke interest are what we're after. Look closely at shapes, structure, texture, and even color. This week you really want to pay close attention to sharpness and focus . However, do be careful that you don't go overboard - it's easy with modern day processing software to over-sharpen and over-process images. Use the tools at your disposal appropriately. Our world abounds with details that are often overlooked - from architectural features to macro shots of the tiniest creatues. Portraiture and close-ups are filled with the details of what makes us, us. The play of light and shadow often helps to bring out details we might otherwise have overlooked. This week's challenge is meant for us to work on our technical as well as our observational skills. Remember when you are out seeing the world, to really look.
