This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Mondays group is “Keyhole.” From this week’s instructions (via Moderator Hans Holt):
Our theme for next week’s Monday will be: keyhole.
Definition: Keyhole is a hole in a lock into which a key can be inserted.
Keyholes are everywhere in and outside your house. To name just a few possibilities: doors, gates, drawers, safes, jewelboxes, diaries, lockers, trunks, briefcases, padlocks, bicycles, cars, etc. All different in shape, design and surrounding material.
The keyhole must be the subject of your photograph, not merely an element that shows up as a background, foreground or other incidental element in your photo.
The key itself is not allowed to show up in the picture.https://www.flickr.com/groups/macromonday/discuss/72157716830535187/
You Have the Key to My Heart
It’s been a month of Sundays since I posted. Our daughter was exposed to COVID so we’ve been in quarantine for a couple of weeks. Thankfully, no one developed any symptoms so we are in the clear as of tomorrow. I’ve been itching to shoot but so so so uninspired. We had a bright day of sunshine yesterday so I decided to shoot for this week’s Macro Mondays theme of “Keyhole.” Curtis got me this sweet little heart locket several years ago… it’s only about 3/4″ wide and believe it or not, I still have the key to it! (Those tiny keys are so easy to lose!) I thought it would make a perfect subject for this week’s theme.
Jewelry Box Lock
I first chose my jewelry box’s keyhole as my subject for this week’s Macro Mondays theme of “Keyhole.” But the composition is kinda blah and I couldn’t make the image look very dynamic so I decided to go with the heart locket instead. I do like the colors and texture though, so I thought it was worth sharing. If nothing else, picking up my camera and getting some extra practice shots is good!
Thanks for looking!
