A while back I was hunting around in my garage, looking for anything that I could photograph for a club competition which was themed as ‘mechanical’. I found a number of items and took a few photos, but in the end wasn’t happy that any were suitable for a competition, so I entered the ‘open’ category instead.
One of the items that I found was an old ‘g’ cramp, and this close up of the thread was one of the images. It was terrible in colour, but I think it is a little better in B&W. It’s still nowhere near competition material, but I quite like the strong contrast between the two sides of the thread. Although the bright side is close to being burned out, it still yields some texture and I think the dark tones on the other side of the thread balance this fairly well.
It might still be a bit boring though.
