Project 365 – Day Three Hundred and Fifty Five – Terracotta Ball

day 355

My daughter recently acquired this big and very bouncy ball. It has a smiley face on the opposite side to the one photographed. I may return to it for another of my “Project 365” shots yet. However, what I really liked were the “terracotta” colour and the lovely ridged texture moulded all over it.

Just ten days to go now but somehow those final few days feel a more daunting prospect than the three hundred and fifty five which I’ve got through. It’s good to see the evenings getting lighter each day, but I don’t think that’s going to benefit me much at all before I’ve completed the project. It could be that I might be able to make it out somewhere to shoot a sunset after work at some point towards the very end of the project. Meanwhile I’m left scraping around for things to shoot at home during the week. However, six out of my last eleven photos taken for the project prior to tonight were shot outdoors and that’s something.

Canon 7D, EFS 15-85mm IS, 1/30 at f11, Nissin Di866 flash fitted with home made snoot.
