Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme

with 3 comments

Variations on a Theme can include “a series of shots showing the same place, person, or object in slightly different light’. So there are a number of possibilities that occurred to me. One was the shot out of the window as the weather or light changes. I have a lot of those. Or one of my early albums on flickr “36 Views of Mount Baker

But then there is also my passion for beer – especially, but not exclusively – strong, black stout. Thanks to the explosion of craft brewers here and elsewhere I get to try plenty of these. I have tried a number of ways to at least record the different brews which means a well lit close up with an undistracting background. Always indoors, of course, so it must be somewhere clean and tidy. After a lot of different attempts I found the stove top to be ideal for my purposes. The flat glass top is usually clean and bare, when not in use, and the tiled backsplash is kept clean. There is also good lighting in the over the range combined hood and microwave. Just the place to display the stout bottle and the freshly poured glass full. Here are just a few of the recent ones. There are more (nearly 100 more at present) on the flickr album.
