Stuff Portrait Friday: Inspiration

Kristine was inspired by a Flickr user this week. Here’s our assignment:

1. Something Discarded
2. Lay down on the ground and find something ugly and make it beautiful.
3. Take a picture in the style of the person that inspires you.

I found my something discarded in the fitting room at Marshall’s. My dressing room tag says “What will you find today?” but I’m pretty sure they didn’t mean empty beer bottles. By the way, back in the 80s the day, my first job was working in the fitting room at Marshall’s. My boyfriend at the time was the janitor, and he found all sorts of lovely discarded items on his nightly dry mop tour of the fitting rooms. One time, he found a Dixie cup with pee in it. Classy folks, our customers.

I was afraid if I lay on the ground, I would have been crawled upon by creepy things and that gave me the heebie jeebies. So I crouched and zoomed to get this little guy. I don’t know if I made him beautiful, but he’s kinda cute, dontchya think?

This photo, like one of mine from last week, was inspired by (e). He loves shooting long exposure shots. I took this one at Kaboom! last weekend. I had the tripod set up and ready to shoot fireworks and was doing test shots. This one used a shutter length of one second.
