Macro in a Mason Jar

In the interest of becoming a better photographer in 2011, I played around with the camera a bit and came up with some fun shots of the beautiful spices that I use to make chai.... (thanks for the idea, Mom.) And I am entering the Gardening Gone Wild Picture This Photo Contest because their photos and the idea inspired me.
When my husband and I were getting to know each other, we used to take our cameras and go off (often with our friend Fanne) and spend the whole day taking photos. We don't do that much anymore, but it would be so much better now, what with the instant feedback that is digital photography. No waiting for developing, we could see how great, or not quite as great as we'd hoped, our photos are. Sometimes I forget to play like that with my camera. It would be fun to have some camera outings in 2011. In the meantime, here is my entry for the photo contest:



Mmmmmm..... time for chai.

I love, love, love the cinnamon sticks in the self seal jar shot . . . it really captures the best possibilities of the technique.
