Nail brush; 4 August 2013.

This nail brush appeared in our bathroom recently and caught my eye every time I used the hand basin.  I like the curve of the handle, and also the way the light comes through between the groups of bristles – which resemble the legs of some monstrous millipede!

Or perhaps this is some large scorpion-like creature, its lethal sting poised above its head, making off to the left intent on giving some hapless victim a bad day.

Scorpion 1 (a real one this time!) is here.

Tripod-mounted D800 with 105mm Micro Nikkor; 200 ISO; conversion to mono, selenium toning and selective colour restoration in Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the High Contrast Green Filter preset.


About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

        Thanks Adrian, life in general is a little brighter at the moment. 😊
        Also I’ve just had two weeks of daywalking, a very hard working and tiring two weeks with lots of changes, but I’m pretty pleased with the way things went.
        I’m back to nights again from tomorrow, one night less each week which I’m looking forward too. Am looking forward to a few more familiar faces, but there are still a few too many new people and places hurdles to jump over to be comfortable again yet. 😊


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
