Dogwood 52: Assignment #24 "Sparkle"

Some friends and I are doing the Dogwood 52 Week photography challenge. We submit a photo each week on a given "assignment" along with commentary and discussion. This week's assignment was:

[Artistic] Sparkle! Shoot what inspires you this week, just make sure it sparkles.

The submissions follow in order submitted along with the photographer's commentary. We'll add other commentary and critique from the group as it comes in.


This is the door of a professor's office at MIT while visiting Boston this week. I thought light streaming through the glass "bubbles" created a cool fantasy sparkle pseudo-bokeh effect.


I've gotten worse recently about carrying a camera around at all times. But on this day, I had my camera and I had my inspiration. This sake tasted like heaven. A bit yoghurty, I think from the acidity and some unfiltered fermentation process. Also, single light pictures with no diffuser can be difficult.
