This week's assignment at Digital Photography School was "Thankful".
Photographing something you are thankful for, if possible with a 50 mm lens.
I didn't have much time for this assignment, but I did take one picture with my lens set to 50mm. I had to back up as far as possible to get my subject to fit.
Then I cropped the image - which makes me wonder if I totally changed the 50 mm qualities of this shot. (Gratitude I understand. I am grateful for so much. 50 mm lenses - I don't get them. Maybe next time!!)
I was winding skeins for dyeing. There's just something about the sight of linen in a swift that is beautiful to me.
I relate to linen....something about how it has a mind of its own. It just wants to do what it wants to do, no matter how much a weaver tries to tame it. Its linen-y nature just shines through.
Some day I'll weave with it. For now, I'll just be thankful.
