Sometimes I get in a rut and need to do something different. It might be shooting the mundane and doing something drastic in post processing or maybe it's shooting something that I would not normally take a photo of or pairing objects that generally don't go together.

When we first moved into our house, we found a packet of love letters hidden in the cellar. These letters seem to chronicle the beginnings of love, to marriage, to divorce. And quite possibly an affair. I have considered several options for these letters. I have let them sit in the drawer while I considered the options. Perhaps trying to use them as a basis for a novel or short story. Or maybe just putting them back. It feels very voyeuristic to be reading them. And especially to make up a story surrounding them. But as a photographer, Iím sort a voyeur by nature. So, I decided to use them in some photo collages.

In an effort to make some more of this fabric art, I went to the craft store. While looking at different types of thread and embroidery silks, I spotted these spools of thread. They were in a clear plastic container and so many lovely colors. I had been having trouble deciding which colors to buy. This made it easy. All the colors!
I got them home and started eyeing them as art in their own right. I donít usually set up scenes or items for shooting as fine art. I shoot product photographs for a living, so itís not something I do in my art. But these spools were calling to me. So, I set them up in my studio, where the natural light is perfect.
I began with them set up like little soldiers, all in a perfect line. I was shooting, moving the colors around, but keeping the same basic line. And then my cat happened.
Before I could do anything, he jumped up on the table and swiped them all down with his paw. I decided I liked this layout. It gave a more natural feel to the spools of thread.
However, he still wanted to help with layout. I let him pick which colors stayed on the table and which went on the floor. I think heís got great taste.
