i heart macro: Can it Get More RANDOM?

This week's 
"i heart macro" photos seem 
reflective of my week... a bit flighty, 
any focus attempted lost by 
bigger, random happenings that got in the way,
demanding attention, 
or smaller ones that just seemed more interesting.  

Good stuff:  I was shooting some jewelry of my own and some of my newest beads orders that have come in recently.   These new headpins made by Susan Kennedy at SueBeads were nearby, and I decided they "needed" their picture taken!"   

For me, a random-happy moment!

And the "not-so-good":
After the jewelry, I started snapping other things 
around the room.

This next one may seem happy, but it's a bad sign.

When I start taking photos of artificial flowers, 
you know it's time for a mid-winter tropical get-away!
(But wait, one clogged drain and a call to the plummer later, and ....
I think I might be getting a wall torn out and some 
new plumbing instead!  
Oh, joy.)

...And that's really just the "mediocre" bad news, 
we'll fast-forward through the rest of the bad news stuff and move on to the end of the week, where I was back photographing jewelry again:      (Whew!)

...some "Destash" beads that went on sale yesterday

#21:  It Gets Better

and rephotographing some winter jewelry 
in the  Clearance Sale for the Studio.

Ahhh... much better!

Wonderful pictures. I wouldn't have knows that was an artificial plant. :) I love those head pins. I have some also and love using them. :)

Pine Ridge Treasures said...

Love the headpins! I hope your bad news isn't too horrible...Seems like everyone is going through a lot right now. Hope it all works out for you.

Sharyl said...

Yes, thanks to all for the kind wishes. Nothing horrible happened, just a series of those unexpected events in life that must be done immediately, cost a lot of money, produce mucho stress, then leave you with nothing to show for them. Our week here was a bit of a "crash pile up" of those, but nothing truly horrible happened (thank goodness)! I just thought it would be boring to read about (and "too much information" to include) so I skipped the details! :-)

Sorry you had to start the new year with one of "those" weeks! The photos are great thought, even the plastic flower! Hope the next week is better for you. :)
