It's Sunday, and the end to a very relaxing weekend. I'm curing the "Sunday Sadies" with a glass of wine and a very past due season of Dexter via Netflix with the husband. Already looking forward to next Friday!
Over the last few years I have begun to collect match books from everywhere we go. It's a convenient reminder of restaurants, bars, etc. that we have been and those that we would like to go back to. This has become increasingly more difficult however with more and more places moving toward non-smoking (don't get me wrong, I think this is great). In some cases toothpicks are substituted for matches which actually just serve to irritate me more....seems like a cheap cover up. But I digress. For this photo I arranged the matchbooks against a black back drop and used a lower aperture (4.8) to blur the background. I boosted the contrast in PS and sharpened the image just a bit.
