4/52 for the group 2014 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This weeks topic was: D is for Difficult Conditions

I needed to photograph this blanket so I could upload a photo to a Facebook crochet group and also so I could blog about it. It happens to be the biggest thing I've crocheted and therefore wasn't easy to photograph. It was raining hard, so taking it outside for better light and more space wasn't an option. The only place large enough to spread it out was our bed.

So... I had to stand on a chair and hold the camera above my head at arms length. Even increasing the ISO led to lots of blurred shots and even the ones I've posted here are far from perfect, but they are good enough for my purpose, so this will also count as my entry because the conditions were definitely difficult!

Once again you've chosen a perfect - and gorgeous - combination of colors.

I like the ombre effect.

I need a camera that does not involve a phone! :)

That is just stunning--colors, patterns, the light. Textures.

Oh my, those colours! I love the way you arranged them. I sympathize with you about the difficulty of the shot; I've had a lot of experience with that type of thing, and it's damned awkward!

You're very talented - in more ways than one. :-)
