Some assignments at Digital Photo School are not inspiring to me.

This week's assignment is "Machinery".

Even though I love many of the things machines can do, I don't generally love machinery, find it inspiring, or want to take pictures of it.

So I tried to photograph machines I use and like.....

Cotton Candy at the Park

Sewing Machine

(a machine I really do love)

Brake on my Toika Loom
(I love my Toika too!)

Borrowed Cone Winding Contraption

This assignment turned into a fun challenge for me! I was a little surprised at how many of my machines are blue. My car is blue too. Blue is my favorite color - so I shouldn't be too surprised I guess.

Fingers crossed that next week's assignment at the photo school is more inspiring to me!!

Well Sue-maybe if you turned the camera angle a little. :)

But you found machines pertinent to your life and that is interesting!

Better living through machinery! Glad it turned into an inspiring lesson

We have matching mixers. Also love mine. I like the picture of the cotton candy machine best. Looks yummy!!!!! That's probably why I like it.

Thank you for all your pictures of the computer Toika! I am also searching for something like that and I just love when someone puts out information on their blogg regarding this projekt.
