3KCBWDAY2 - Photography Challenge

I am taking part of Eskimimi Makes 3rd annual knitting and crochet blog week

Topic of the day: 3KCBWDAY2 -  Photography Challenge Day!

Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn't about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it's about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. One example of setting a scene would be to photograph a girl in a knitted red cape walking through the woodlands with a basket of goodies, as in the Red Riding Hood tale, or you might photograph a knitted gnome hiding among the flowers in your garden. Photo editing is permitted for competition photos. 

Once in a while when I have completed a project it ends up in the most unusual places. For instance my latest hat some how made it on to the head of Franklin D. Roosevelt's Scottish Terrier named Fala. So not only was Fala the companion of one of the greatest President's this country has had, he also had impeccable fashion sense:

Does he not look dashing in it, Darling?

Until next time, Happy Knitting!

  1. Fala really loves good knitting, apparently !

  2. Fala seems to know that it's all about a touch of color.
