Empty Nest

Inner Connections

I combined the minimalist photo challenge with photo 101’s connection theme, which seemed appropriate given the subject matter. These dolls are from Russia and you can see how small they get, but alas there was no very tiny vodka bottle to be found. 😉

Light was lacking when I took the shot, so might try again later. I really like the focus/foreground/background elements here. Should I make any changes if I try again? All photos taken with a Samsung Galaxy phone.

  1. I love Russian Dolls! My dear old late Granny had two sets that ended up thoroughly trashed from all us grandkids pulling them apart and putting them back together again.

    I really like how the focus goes blurry towards the edges. Maybe flip the phone over and use a landscape aspect next time though?

    And yes, “Too bad about the vodka” is a perfect writing prompt!! Maybe you should start a challenge. 🙂

    1. hiya meg, i’ll try flipping my phone. it’s gotten gloomy here so lightning is pretty useless right now, we’ll see what the weekend holds. i was never really a fan of these dolls until i got this one, for the very reason you mention – they’re fun to take apart and look at. and these get so small.

      now i also have a set of measuring nesting cups, which aren’t as cool to look at but they save space and stay clean since they stack up together so nicely. glad you stopped by too, by they way!
