Have you lost your marbles?

Here’s a  little study of light and texture with my macro lens.  This is a close up view of a jar full of marbles.  It is actually something I had on my desk to hold a flower made of PVC pipe which I got from my friend Bryan Blackmon.  The green in the middle is the stem of the flower.

I put an LED light underneath the vase holding the marbles and got some interesting patterns.  The marbles are clear glass but there are bubbles and imperfections which add to the texture.  The final image seems to float as if in water but this composition is actually all dry.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
