Being Creative on a Sick Day

After a couple of rainy days when I was stuck inside with a cold, I was getting anxious to get out with my camera, but wasn’t feeling up to it.  Instead, I thought I’d stay inside where it was warm and dry and try to find something creative to do with my camera.

These images were created by pouring some cooking oil into a glass container of water.  The container was elevated over several colourful swatches and these macro images are what resulted from my efforts.

Almost like snowflakes, no two images turn out the same, as the oil was moving slowly across the surface of the water, constantly changing shape as oil blobs joined each other.

It’s always fun to experiment with a camera, even when stuck inside.  I’m glad I didn’t let a little cold keep me from making some interesting images.
