Week 29 by Robin

Totally Tubular, Mon!

I was thinking lately about photographers that I admire who create photographs that inspire me to try something similar. Ursula came to mind because she often creates amazing photos from common objects. I tried getting some dandelion seed puffs and mist them, but it made all the fibers clump up. Haha! I tried flowing water with colored lights, but I can't figure out how she manages to get such beautiful water shots. So, I tried straws and came up with this. I cut some straws and taped them on my monitor and ran a colorful screensaver. With a shallow DOF and a slow shutter, you can't see the tape :) It's the best I could come up with.


  1. This is absolutely beautiful. You made such a simple boring object amazing. Nicely done. I like your thought process in coming up with your masterpiece.

  2. Love it! I thought at first that they were solid pipes and was really wondering how you made that photo, but after seeing your explanation, it was even more interesting. Super creative! Keep those creative juices flowing!
