Razor


Confession time: I have a toy box. Several, actually. Plastic bins full of interesting junk that might come in handy for photography someday. There's the liner from a cereal box, several dozen egg shells, string, pressed leaves, buttons, broken tools...you get the picture. So to speak.

Included in the pile are the salvaged head components of a discarded electric shaver. This is one of three  blade covers, photographed on a Fisher Price tracing toy (back-lighting box) I held onto from when my kids were little.

Hoarding. It's a Good Thing.

I am glad you said that..yes it has to be a good thing...i do it all the time. I must drag out some stuff to photograph. I do take out my son's old books and toys for his son:)
Great image - very inventive too:)

What a cool subject to photograph, so creative! Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)

Betty Luckhurst said...

Definitely different! Those contrasts could make a lot of great edits.

Lorik, a lady after my own heart. Clutter is underrated.

Thanks, all, for stopping by!

I've got lots of craft supplies, but oddly never really think of using them purely for photography, thanks for the inspiration (great photos too!)

Smart.
I like the elegance of the discarded electric shaver.
Have a nice day.

Cool results♫ Now that you've photographed it, will it still be saved? Just wondering♫♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/door-to-possibility/

I would never have guessed. But of course I have no such items in my home. :) It is beautiful.

MyMaracas said...

Lmkazmierczak - Oh yeah, I'll hold onto it. You never know when pieces of a broken shaver might come in handy.
