iSpy #2

By | January 16, 2021

Hey yall! It’s already time for another iSpy photo challenge. I was in the office this week training my new crew. This means I get home and am ready to collapse. Just so tired. Here’s how I saw the prompts through my lens.

Parts So I think I struggled with this one the most. I had all sorts of ideas, but ended up thinking about all the parts that make up my shadow box. I’ve had all this since I was a kid.


Hungry Here’s my dinner one night when I was very hungry! This was a minestrone type soup (without the pasta) I made with some Pinot Gris.


Details – These Mustard Japanese Giant Red leaves are gorgeous. I thought this was a gorgeous shot of the details in the leaf.


Home My boy at home. šŸ™‚


Sky Yesterday, we had some really pretty partly cloudy skies that I was excited to snap a shot of, but when I got home as you can see it had cleared for the most part.


For all of these photos, I used this equipment:
Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens

    I really struggled with “parts” too! I also kept thinking it was pieces which I somehow found much easier to think of.

      It’s really crazy when I find photography prompts or think of them and I’m like ‘oh that won’t be bad.’ Then I find myself thinking and looking and struggling.

    Your details picture is my favourite! But I also love the parts one. And now I want to make Minestrone šŸ™‚

      Thank you! I almost didn’t post a couple of these pics because I couldn’t come up with anything. I had to think hard.

    Going to do a two-week compilation of photos so will link up next week with my captures. I like the shadow box. Reminded me of one I had years ago – in another life. Had some precious little things displayed on it and then one day everything crashed to the ground. Out of the clear blue. And many of my sweet things were smashed and broken. Made me so sad.
    You and Joanne have inspired me to get out my ‘good’ camera. Took it with me today to snap pics. Need to learn to be more confident with it. Hope these challenges will help.

      Some of the stuff in my shadow box have fallen off. The picture I took doesn’t show that, since I just showed part of the box. I’ve thought about gluing everything into place, but I just can’t bring myself to do that.

      I am with you about using the good camera. I have had to do that since my iPhone camera is so terrible. There are lots of youtube videos and blogs out there to help you learn how to switch up the settings.

    Love your pictures! The “parts” are so cute and perfect!! I struggled with parts as well as all I though of were parts in the garage LOL. Great details on the leaf!

      Thank you! It’s crazy how some of these prompts that don’t seem that hard at first end up being so difficult. It’s great to stretch our imagination though.
