Friday’s theme for week 2 of Photo 101 was mystery.
Arrrrrrgh! I struggled and struggled. Maybe I’ve been tired or overthinking this or simply became temporarily uninspired.
My first attempt was inspired by murder mysteries à la Agatha Christie. I artfully “knocked over” the metronome on to the piano keys.
Then I thought about shadows and darkness and got, well, shadows and darkness and not much else.
Moving to the next room for inspiration, I took some fuzzy pictures of a carved stone face of an unknown man. He lay cleverly angled on a wood side table with a prominent grain.
I tried again on Father’s Day (Happy Belated Your Day to all the dads out there!) and achieved some potentials.
Random ones also made the cut.
A leftover from my mini bubble series.
If I am inspired later with mystery, I’ll give this theme another shot.
Have you ever been stuck on something to the point of paralysis and everything you tried felt more and more ridiculous? I’m sure we all have. What’s your most memorable?
