Be Glad They Weren’t Selfies…

Yesterday I took 543 pictures. Nah, I didn’t actually count. But my camera did. It let me know the grand total when I downloaded them. Or maybe it was the computer cluing me in…do you wish to download 543 images? Yes, please. Would you like to caption them? Uhh…no thank you! I should explain: The other day a big heavy box of goodies arrived…new product for our store. After carefully receiving each piece and giving it an item number, I set about my photography duties. Now, Ansel Adams, I’m not. But I’m trying to be a passable tabletop photographer, and largely failing! Oh I suppose I’m okay at it, just okay. Impossibly shiny nickel plated hardware presents a lot of challenges to the photographer. I’ll be convinced that I’m capturing a piece just right, angling the lighting perfectly, catching a nice reflection, but diminishing the shadows. Then, magnified 8000 times on my computer screen, I’ll see it…..a tiny portrait of me, reflected in the shiny surface of a buckle. Yep, there I am, the camera obscuring much of my face, only the grim, frustrated but determined set of my mouth, revealing my identity and my disposition. So I guess I was taking selfies after all…
