    Believe it or not, I actually recognize this stuff! It’s a great macro subject, and I appreciate that the packing material is totally recyclable. You have a good eye to pick this out. :)

  • Thank you Celeste for the lovely comments and the fave. I really enjoyed shooting this packing material…lots of angles, different lighting, differing DOF’s. I’m not sure if this was the best one or not, but it caught my eye.
