Bokeh Thursday: I See Me!

Bokeh Thursday: I See Me!
This morning I was replying to comments when I ran into one of my groupmates in the Bokeh Thursday group. They had a picture up for today's theme, "In the Kitchen," and I screamed at the monitor, "AHHHHHH!! I FORGOT!!!" Well, no worries, it was the morning, but it's so much fun to get dramatic! :D

I grabbed my camera and macro flash and entered the kitchen, wondering what wonderful thing I would find for the theme. My first idea was a shiny tea strainer, and it worked quite nicely, but I wanted a second subject, so I looked for something else. Hmm...*pulling open drawers*..."OH! MEASURING SPOONS!!" It didn't even occur to me that I could turn this into a silly selfie...I started out with my flash on, and getting blown out shots from the reflected spoons...so, I turned off the flash and tried again. "HEY!!! LOOK AT THE SILLY GIRL IN THE SPOON!!!! YAYYY!!!" :D Since the spoon's reflection turned me upside-down, I did the same to this image and now you guys can see me taking this picture with the flash attachment in place but not turned on! NEATO!! Oh yeah, fun bokeh too! :D :D

By the way, if you enjoy taking pictures with bokeh in them, you might be interested in this group. Lots of very nice people and we would love to have more join in the fun! Bokeh Thursday

Smashing idea (especially at short notice) and very well put together and executed............and as a bonus we get a self portrait and a sneaky look at your macro kit. Brilliant!!

Great idea! Your camera looks awfully scary and heavy! How do you manage it?

Your flash system is faster than lightning: when the photons hit the cell, the flash has already retired. :-)
