I'm a Sucker For ...

Books. Hardback. In a series (especially). I love books, but prefer to own them only if I can get them in hardback. I also love a good series (or, books by the same author which are made by the publisher to look nice while on a shelf). I have many series, from fantasy, to, well, Harry Potter (which I guess is considered fantasy?). This photo came closest to meeting the photo challenge (though by no means is this the only set of books I have) -- darn you, tricky macro setting!

I was inspired by my friend Stephanie who found this photo challenge from a friend. I'm always trying to improve my photo-taking skills (how else can I justify a DSLR down the road???), so I figured I'd give it a try.

Kristine’s photo challenge:

Objective: Finish the sentence, “I’m a sucker for…” by taking a photograph using the macro setting on your camera. You can be as concrete or as abstract as you like. Make sure you write a blog post about it too.

Great photo! I think you can justify the fancy camera!

NICE! I quite enjoy the use of natural lighting, which you used so perfectly. (I can't believe that I just saw this...I am so behind).
