'Sharpen' by Me

It's funny, you never know when photographic inspiration is going to hit you. Today I was sharpening a pencil and when I looked at the sharpenings I just thought, "PHOTO"! Luckily the sun was shining brightly so I gathered up all the pieces, put them near the sunlight and snapped away. I think the results are very pleasing. I really like the colours but that's not really my doing - it just happened to be the colour of the pencil which needed sharpening. All in all I think this is a rather pretty picture.


  1. I enjoy pictures like this of everyday objects in a new light. I'd love to try similar but my macro on pocket camera is pants.

  2. It's lovely how one can find beauty in such trivial objects. One thing I love about sharpening pencils is the sound it makes. It's soothing to me. Weird, but true!

  3. I actually love the color combination there, the lilac and the 2 tone wood shavings. Great eye!
