I chose to use a photo that I took back in April for the challenge word "One." It was a word that I chose (in honor of my daughter turning 1), but I was having a hard time thinking outside the box of an idea to shoot for the word. This photo reminds me of Rachel for several reasons:
- She suggested photographing a calculator, which this obviously is.
- Way back at the beginning of the year, she taught me that I could still take good photos (up-close ones even) with "just" a point-and-shoot. This photo shows detail, texture, and focus. Before Rachel, I didn't know about the macro/flower function.
- Rachel encouraged me to not be afraid to edit. This was one of the first challenges I started editing pictures for.
- Rachel's pictures always have great color in them. This is a really great blue.
