....or opening Pandora's Box
Recently I've been feeling a bit of a fake or a fraud. I'm finding it a real struggle
to come up with an image, any image, for my PAD, which I feel highlights my
lack of skill as a photographer. There are photographers on pbase who can make
anything look good but unfortunately I'm not one of them.
This bracelet is a bit of a fake too. Sure it's pretty and it holds sentimental value
for me as many of the charms were given to me as gifts while others were bought
on holidays. There is a market leader in this type of bracelet but that brand of charms
are expensive. So when I found some'compatible' charms for a couple of Euro in a market
in Barcelona I decided to buy a few of the colourful glass ones. Once back home,
I bought a silver bracelet and slowly began to build up a collection of charms,
none as cheap as those from the San Antonio market but cheaper than the real thing.
Only one of my charms is a genuine Pandora charm but I doubt if the casual observer
could tell the difference although the sharp-eyed looking at this picture might notice a
bit of tarnish on one of the glass beads.
