With time on my hands and summer heat I have been trying to exercise my creative abilities by taking some still life photos. I have a couple of objects around the house that are older and I wanted to try to express that in the way the photos are processed. The exercise has helped me with my focusing skills and with some different photoshop techniques. I am just not sure that they express anything and that they may be contrived. I am not really sure what I am trying to say but most importantly I am having fun taking them.
