    these pics surely remind me of product catalogs and shooting products is not easy either maybe your boredom is teaching or telling you where your talents lies products shooting is a highly lucrative business

    It amazes me how photographs can be made interesting from such mundane objects!

    Mind you, you obviously cannot find time to put a new light bulb in whilst in such a creative mood!

    Well spotted. I have two teenage fridge magnets and a 7 year old cookie monster so the sticky paw prints are part of the fixtures

    Again thankyou all for your positive comments. I think I will stick with the day job. The photography is just a release....how much did you say I could get?....just kidding

    He He..creative is not the word my wife would use

    I know how it is when you must "shoot" something. Practice makes perfect. I like the second image best. I think I like it in blk/whi even better than in the color image of the same lights you posted in "IS THIS TOO TACKY." Both are artsy, I just like this one a bit more. It's an interesting light fixture, if you could spare a bulb, I'd like to plant one and grow my own like that.

    I prefer the first best, there's a symmetry to it I like. (he says, laying on the floor viewing it sideways)

    OK, 'fess up, who nicked the bulb?
    At least Chuck had the decency to ask first.

    You rumbled me. The image was indeed taken looking down a stack of drawers. I rotated 90 degrees because I though it would give the image more punch.
