Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

From The Daily Post at WordPress:

Our photographs tell stories, big and small. Some of our images are landscapes, offering wide and sweeping views of a scene; these pictures might tell the tales of an entire city, or a tapestry of stories of many people. Some photographs, like portraits, focus on individuals, while still-life moments capture the beauty (and often treasured stories) of belongings and found objects.

In this week’s challenge, I’d like you to use one tangible object as both your inspiration and subject. It can be the obvious focal point of your shot — or you can get creative and find other ways to feature your object — the only requirement is it must be somewhere in your frame.

Okay, so technically one could argue that I’ve used two objects.  But I’ve chosen to photograph the red and yellow mineral rocks that I have.  So, can I say that technically my object is minerals? Semantics?!

I’m afraid couldn’t begin to tell you the first thing about what kind of rocks or minerals these are. I just know I love their beauty (and the camera does not do justice!). If anyone knows about these and would like to share the information with me, please feel free to do so!

  6. There is no doubt that rocks and stones have an amazing attraction. Love the way the contrasting color stones are arranged.

    I thought they looked like delicious fudge! Rocks are a bit less tasty but their beauty lasts longer, so it’s six and two threes, really!

    • HeeHee!! Fudge! But you are so right that the rocks will definitely last longer. Had it been fudge, you would have seen the bite marks! Say, I like that — six and two threes! I usually say it’s six of one, half a dozen of another! 🙂

  10. When I first saw that pic, Linda, I thought they were rock candy. The one on the left could be toffee (I love toffee!!).
