I've been trying to figure out my new camera for half a year now.  After taking a class last fall, I was still at a loss as to how to get the photos I wanted, so I signed up for a two weekend digital photography intensive workshop at ICP .

The first assignment was to experiment with depth of field.
I have a jar full of spools that belonged to my mom.   They are among my favorite things. 
They were the perfect subject. 
Now that the spools are suspended in time, will I use the thread to sew?


  1. Love the photo - I like the depth of field - you get the detail and the subtlety. It will be good to use the threads . . . memories are made by the using as well as by just the having of someone's treasures. And now you've got the beautiful photo to look back on, too.

  2. Did you see that Barbara Brackman put your quilt on her web site? I'm sure you did, but I got all excited when I saw it there. Congratulations.
