Shopping is Sometimes a Blur – 53/365

I hate shopping. I always have. As a child the very mention of the word used to make me exhausted and give me a headache. Now, I don't feel much different about it and can't really understand those who do it for fun. A visit to a shopping mall is my idea of torture. But needs must at times and on Saturday I had to go shopping for drugstore glasses. These are interim (so that I can see) while I wait for my new contact lenses to arrive this week. (For those who don't know, I had eye surgery in December and they have only just been able to finish measuring so that I can be fitted for glasses/lenses.) So on Saturday shopping was more of a blur than usual. 😀

I took this photograph and when I saw it, it reminded me of +Achim Blechschmidt and the wonderful work he does. So it is with a tip of the hat to Achim, whom I really suggest you add to your circles if you want to see some exceptional quality images.

Monochrome – 49/365

I actually was taking a photograph of things in this dish, not this dish at all. But then I was rather taken by the interior with the glass stamens and decided to photograph this just by itself.  (Now I am caught up for my 365 Project!)

A monochrome treatment suits the following themes :
