Day 23 Little red birdie

You know I'm hard up for a photo when I start photographing things around my house....however, I LOVE playing with focus and light. I also LOVE birds, trees, branches, bokeh, soooo........I like this photo very much . Recently, my husband and I took my brother to eat at the Cracker Barrel....my favorite place. They have this little gift shop and I immediately saw this little bird frame. I love frames....and miniature things of all kinds. This little frame only holds a 1" photo. The square vase in the background has a bare tree etched on the glass. I love that too, so I thought why not this for my photo.....I spilled out a few of the marbles and set it up on the counter by a window. It took a few tries to get it right, so it ended up to be good practice.

  1. I have never been to Cracker Barrel... I've heard a lot about it though :) I like how the marble bokeh repeats both in the foreground and background!

  4. Ah- you got the glass beads into the shot! Really nice depth of field and focus! Love it! Is there a Cracker Barrel in Utah??? I went to one for the first time in Georgia last year- I love Southern cooking!

  6. I am constantly photographing things around the house. Being a stay at home mom, often my options are limited except for a million pictures of my daughter. :) Great shot!

  7. Karren, I think taking photos of things that are special to you is a great idea! Your family will cherish the simple stories about Cracker Barrel and why you loved this bird. The red really pops.
