I love soaps
06-DEC-2009

I love soaps

The sun was shining and I was home alone - apart from a teenager who doesn't need babysitting any more.
So what did I do? Did I get up bright and early and head off to the mountains or the beach? Did I visit the Continental
Market in more favourable conditions? No, the lovely sunlight which I'd been carving all week also showed up the
dust so I spent the best hours of the day cleaning! I reckon if you see dust on your orchid when you get out
your macro lens, it's time to dust. At least I had some nice French soap to photograph.

Great close-up! I love herbal scented soaps also.

Yes, the dust can ruin everything, black velvet, being the worst. This is the loveliest shot of soap I have seen, it even smells good, lavender, almonds.... v

Macro lenses are heartless! But yours captured an excellent symbol of a busy day.

You managed to take a great shot despite your busy schedule. Well done! V

The traditonal soap cliffhanger - will it topple or not?! But macro lenses will pick up dust no matter how clean and polished - so never use one of those as and indicator for the need to polish! I like the purple one, bet they smell great too :o)

These soaps look and smell nice, I am sure. I thought at first they were some kind of chocolates. :)

Don't you just hate it when you take a picture and then find out there's so much dust on the item you won't post it :-(
