2014—Seeing Stars

I tossed a handful of small star shaped brads onto the black granite window seat and took some macro shots. In post processing, I completely desaturated the greens and yellows which were reflected in the black granite and I thought detracted from the stars. I’m not sure what was reflecting on the one star that looks orangey red. The only thing it could have been is the cabinets which are stained a reddish “golden oak.” Once again, the gods of Serendip have graced me with their presence. As a result, along with the blue stars reflecting the sky outside, the few that are their natural silvery white color, and the lone, reddish one, I ended up with red, white, and blue stars. My subject was inspired by my daily Flickr challenge group.
