Day 159 - 16th December 2011 by 

Day 159 of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.

I was a little dubious when I first thought of photographing this homemade jar of jam. I’m not sure where it was bought from (it was homemade by someone, just not us!), but instead of a jar lid, it was covered in a piece of pink foil. Only once I’d removed the foil did I spot the messy jam all round the rim, which instantly made the photo more interesting. I think if the jam had been neatly in the jar, then it wouldn’t have look half as good. I guess it goes to show that making a mess is good afterall!

    THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING YOUR WORK TO The Tools Group 2 per day.

    This is how a jar of jam should look, makes me want to make so toast and spread some on it. Great photo would make a great print or poster for a deli or jam company or farmers market stall.

  • thank you very much Karen, hopefully someone will spot it and do just that! :)
