Lesa said...

Oooo-- that would be a great header for a craft blog!

OMGosh, girl...you are SOOO good at what you do, over there around your island!! :))

Ralph said...

The most basic items seem to be forgotten, unless formed or sewn into a recognizable garment. We see here, though, that a pile of the small items have an artistic quality. One is not much, however many are remarkable!

Felisol said...

Great macro mix.
I had to google sequin.
I wasn't able to identify the word by the picture. "Paljett" is the Norwegian word, so far away from common English. I very much connect sequins with my daughter's Barbie Dolls from the early nineties.
Some of them were actually quite beautiful.
I guess from the colors that your daughter's work turned out nicely too.

Are you enjoying the extension tubes? They are on my list but a speedlight comes first.

Daryl said...

Oh what fun ... we're both in a crafty photo mood .. now of course I want to try to get a macro like this ...

Mimi said...

Great macro shot, I love the way you've played with the light.

Flea said...

I love the sequins! I don't actually usually like sequins, but the macro shot, taking them out of context, is nice. :)

Dianne said...

JTS said...

I love how simple things can become items of great beauty when viewed thru the camera lens with an artist's eye!

Hey Robin!

New equipment is such fun, isn't it? That's a pretty amazing shot of such tiny little sequins. I like the idea of using that for a craft blog header.

I agree with Lesa´s comment!Great photo!

Carmi said...

I feel like I could reach through the screen and pick one up! Great perspective on a close-in world that most others would simply miss.

Then again, you have an eye that few others possess.

Dina said...

Sequins! They could almost be flowers.
Pretty.

Mrs. S. said...

Very pretty!
But let me guess: You've been spending the past few days picking up all the sequins which fell off the project... :-)

Shavua tov!

Robin said...

Yup LOL.
