Macro Monday: Crime

Monday, May 1st, 2017

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Crime.” From this week’s instructions:

We had an unusual theme way back in 2010 that might be interesting to try once again. The theme was CRIME. And next Monday, CRIME strikes again. Everyone enjoys reading a good mystery novel or watching detective/criminal investigation movies and TV shows. Why not see what we can come up with to illustrate this captivating genre that is so prevalent in TV, movies, books and games? If memory serves me there were a lot of creative images focusing on forensics, fingerprints, investigative techniques, incriminating evidence, police, spies, theft, graft, crime-fighting heroes, film noir, femmes fatales, and crimes of fashion (HA!).

Crime Scene

I wanted to create a mini crime scene so I made fake blood (powdered sugar, cocoa, water, and red food coloring) and dripped it onto a small mirror. I also grabbed the corner of the mirror to create a fingerprint. This was a fun challenge! I actually had a couple of other images I liked well enough to include in my blog post too.

Bloody Bokeh

Just throwing the lens out of focus created a neat effect on my staged crime scene created with fake blood on a mirror. I like the effect!

Lipstick-Stained Trouble

This was a close second to submit… but I think it was too abstract to get at first sight. It’s a lipstick-stained wine glass tipped over a glass plate which is covered in blood drops. I like the abstract effect!
