200th post! For Bridget and Steve

Spent some time in the giant garage sale today (a.k.a. Sally's, Sal's, or Salvation Army). Thought I'd try treasure hunting like Steve does. I found a beautiful wooden bowl and inspired by Bridget's easter baskets, took these partial shots.

From there I decided to play around a little and got this by moving the camera while shooting(noise filter, higher contrast, enlarge to see):

Almost as though a ghost was pouring out of the bowl. Also noticed the light coming in from a crack in the table on this picture. Would not have seen it if I hadn't moved the camera.

I had to take over 50 pictures to find these that I liked. Glad I didn't stop though. Thank you for the inspiration, Bridget and Steve. Your beautiful bowls and partial photos, Bridget, and your willingness to find a treasure to shoot, Steve, have both influenced me!

Glad you found a treasure to photograph! Shooting something new gives us a little more interest, doesn't it? I mean over 50 shots! You were motivated! Nice results too!

Nice thinking with the bowls. My favorite is the third one. I love that effect of moving the camera or zooming the lens. Nice work and nice perseverance to shoot 50 shots!
