Tacky? You Be The Judge........

MAY 8, 2010

I was so anxious to get outside and  take some shots with my Nikon camera using a macro lens a friend had lent me but it seemed it wasn't meant to be.  Mother nature is acting up again ( I think I'll need to drag out the mittens and winter coat !) and the battery died on the Nikon...**sigh**

Putting on the ole' thinking cap trying to figure out a back up plan, I transformed the kitchen table into a makeshift "photo studio" and scoured the house trying to find something unique to shoot.  I was digging through my purse to find the standby digital camera and was pricked in the process with a red push pin that somehow made it's way onto the bottom of my bag.  BINGO!

I ran upstairs to the office and grabbed the clear, stackable container of office supplies and noticed that all of the push pins I had were clear!  My mind started racing as I thought of all of the creative possibilities there were.  After many different "poses", I settled for this one.  Tacky?  Perhaps.  But isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder?



  1. I absolutely love this one! Way to be innovative! Eight for eight, Mags. You're on a roll and I love it.

    We should go out and do a photo shoot when the weather gets this cold shit out its system.

  2. Definitely we should! Guy and I went on a hike today (yes, you read that correctly, I said A HIKE) in Inglewood along the Caledon Trailway....of course, city girl me wasn't prepared for it.....wearing flip flops and a paper thin spring coat.....but it was a good day out.......


Want to add your two cents? Do you agree with me? Disagree with me? Or just think I should be committed? Let me know!
