Demon Minion

A despicable red pull-tab from a can of Cheerwine cherry soda.  This was one of the most difficult things I’ve tried to photograph.  The camera just didn’t want to focus on it in any light or background.  I put it against a black background to make it look darker and redder and despicabler.

Photographed for this week’s Macro Mondays challenge, “Pareidolia” (seeing faces and other familiar shapes in unrelated things).

Dark Brightness and Bright Darkness

This photo was taken in bright light without flash on auto focus, but the camera overcompensated for the light and darkened the area around the fixture. I love the shades of brown that resulted. The ceiling itself is actually white. No editing was done besides the signature.

This photo was taken in low light without flash with the slowest shutter speed on the camera. Despite the dimness, the long exposure collected enough light to wash out the subject. No editing was done other than the signature.
