one day at a time

day 80: droplets

Every now and then I don’t really feel like going outside all day long and end up taking pictures of fruit or things I have lying around here. In an attempt to take a picture of a kaki fruit I managed to accidentally get droplets of its juice on the touchpad of my laptop. Generally this isn’t such a good idea, but with a laptop with unibody aluminum casing a few droplets don’t really pose a threat. I took it as a photo opportunity since kaki fruits are not really photogenic after all, at least when it comes to macro photos. I like how the droplets look almost abstract with the shallow depth of field and the strange texture of the aluminum.

  7. If I had tried to guess, I would have said it looks very much like olive oil on a teflon-coated pan. Very interesting coincidence that these two VERY different things would look so similar.
