Day 174: A Little Light Reading

Today’s shot didn’t start like this. It actually started around 7:30 AM with a bunch of bananas and a large glass jar I tried shooting through. The result of that shot was fun, and I may go back to it, but this little ditty hit me close to reading time tonight. The tricky part of this one was not over exposing the books on left, which I ended up doing anyway. A tip-of-the-hat to Nicole Dube over at all of those fun Nancy D shots she worked so hard on during our shared month of blog misery joy.

  1. I like the set up, and the picture. But the upside down back cover is a bit off putting. (I think we have some of these at home, so I get that the books are made that way). I would have tried to hide the back cover some.
