By now, some of you may be wondering what’s with all the indoor, macro shots, and whether there will ever be anything else. Well, that’s none of your business. This is my blog and I’ll do whatever I want.
There will definitely be other photos in the future, many of them outside. But because I lack the most experience with indoor photography, especially lighting and close-ups, this project is a great opportunity to practice those skills. So far I’m satisfied with the results, particularly because all of the images up until now have been taken with natural light and without the aid of a tripod. They are all hand-held shots and captured with a lens that has no image stabilization, which means I’ve got a steady hand and nerves of steel! [snort]
Let’s stop the babble and get to this week’s images.

What I've learned this week:
My camera is a cherished item. If anything ever happens to it, I will immediately replace it. And figure out how to pay for it later!
It is getting easier to photograph dark colours, especially black.
Changing the perspective can turn the most mundane object into an interesting image.
My home is overflowing with photo opportunities.
And that’s a wrap for week eight. Enjoy the weekend, everyone!
