I’m too angry to write about the Senate’s betrayal of democracy yesterday when they passed the fast track authority bill. Instead, I’ll write about visiting antique stores in Stillwater, which I did today and Monday in search of close-up photographs of metal. That is the current weekly challenge on Photo Challenge. I was able to take photos inside the stores in spite of the low light by using an ISO of 12,800. Using extremely high ISO settings causes noise in photographs, but I was able to remove much of the noise in Adobe Lightroom. In addition to the photos I took in the stores, I bought two things to use in still lives at home: a small, porcelain clown and an egg beater. Below are my antique photos plus a couple of others from this week.
