Red Umbrella

Get Pushed: enveehaze gave me the following rolling challenge:


Hi Jonathan - I enjoyed looking thru your photos. You have some lovely images. I noticed you seem to focus on people. For your challenge, I would like you to focus on the inanimate instead. Please do a macro. Focus on the ordinary details of an object that make it extraordinary. I hope this is a fun and inspiring challenge for you! I look forward to seeing the result.


I've had similar challenges a few times now, some version of - take an abstract, closeup, no people shot - and it always gives me trouble. That's a good thing of course; it pushes me out of my comfort zone. So here is my attempt - I cheated a little but I also wouldn't have taken it this way without the push. So, as always, a learning experience.


For anybody interested, the challenge came from a Flickr group called Get Pushed, which you can find here:
