In this week’s challenge, I’d like you to use one tangible object as both your inspiration and subject. It can be the obvious focal point of your shot. Or you can get creative and find other ways to feature your object — the only requirement is it must be somewhere in your frame. THIS WEEK, IN A POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OF ONE OBJECT.
This is one of the few objects that came with me to Panama. It’s a little box that I bought on a trip to Venice, Italy with my daughter a few years ago. The top is Murano glass, specifically Millefiori (a thousand flowers), a very beautiful but complicated type of glass work. (check out this video on how millefiori is made) I love glass (even considered a career as a glass artist) so I had a great time seeing all the gorgeous glass in Venice.
This object is also significant because this was my first trip to another country. We had such a good time and the people were wonderful, and I lost my fear of “foreign” places. Because of this, I was able to consider living in another country.
So, it may be a small object but it represents a lot to me.
