Taken last night. I haven't been shooting much lately due to having a very busy spell at work and a general lack of ideas. I decided to try my hand at my photo club's assignment topic this month to see if I could get moving again. The assignment was "Staged" with a definition of "An arrangement of people or objects arranged by the photographer." Hard to get together a group of people with enough patience to give me time to make a successful image so I went with the "objects" option. I am pleased with the results and will definitely be trying a bit more of this type of still life photography in the future.
