May I take a moment to vent? I read, before I started this project, about how there are days in a 365 project that feel uninspired and when picking up your camera is the hardest thing to do. And sure, there have been some hard days so far in my two months of looking for something to shoot. But not until yesterday did I find myself actually annoyed by the assignment I'd given myself and the constraints I feel boxed in by.
Oh let me count the ways: It's winter. There is no daylight. Or anyway I'm never outside when there is. I feel cornered, forced to shoot things inside my house. This leads me to make still life after still life and I find myself looking at them and saying to myself Yeah, it's pretty (or interesting or colorful or strange) but what does it DO?
In case today's picture seems at all interesting or colorful or strange (and in case you wonder what the hell it is) it's actually a close look at one of the bright spots of winter for me: grapefruit. These frothy bubbles represented my breakfast yesterday morning as well as one of my last days with the fancy borrowed macro. So, because I can, I shot a picture of details of my breakfast I would never see with my naked eye.
And then I put the camera down for the day, cranky. Enough already.
