Clock gears

When you teach, you learn. I was so impressed with what my students did in my recent experimental "Parts is Parts" online photo class that I was inspired to take a new look at some "clock guts" I have -- gears from a clock that are still intact, about the size of my hand, about two inches thick. I can place my camera on the edge and shoot through the gears, focusing on bits and pieces here and there. It's hard, but it's fun. And without having taught this most recent class, and being inspired by my students' work, I probably wouldn't have thought about doing these shots.

This morning I was also photographing a daisy and combining it with a piece of metal. ©Carol Leigh
