Default Macro Abstract

This is a 1:1 macro. I really liked the colors and the feeling of texture in it. It doesn't give you much clue to what it is though - is it a fabric? Or something else?



I backed away a bit to capture more color and pattern. This picture makes one wonder if the neat texture might not fall into the "ooops" category. And it doesn't exactly look like a fabric pattern any more.



Only a photographer would think of taking a series of photos and practicing macro photography when their 30" Dell monitor looked like this:



Since it was one of the IS guys who broke it, I didn't feel at all guilty taking photos of it. I thought it was pretty, though it was supposed to be showing the Windows log-in page, not an abstract pattern and cracked glass.

Great series!

Making the best of a broke (bad) situation.

I would have done it too, the shots turned out very interesting. Looking at the first one only I was guessing in the right direction but didn't guess broken, I had assumed a monitor closeup of a night shot. Nice shooting

I think I see in the upper left hand corner of the first shot the soon-to-be-famous McTech Tartan!

G'day MtnGal

You have done okay I reckon ~ got a great collection of "McTech Tartan's" there too

ps- the broken screen however is an all-too-common feature for travellers who put the power cord into the soft case on the laptop's screen-side, rather than putting it into the pocket at the end of the laptop

Good point about the power cord - I'll need to make sure my laptop has it's back facing the compartment that has a tangle of various cords in it.

Love the idea of the McTech Tartan - I know someone who would get a great kick out of that!

Interesting, I'll show it to my wife. Who knows, it may already be a registered tartan.

Interesting! Yes, only a photographer would take images of that. I would have been.
