I took this reflective image a short time after my left for work. On the morning it was tipping down with rain 'as usual' so I jokingly said "pack your trunks" as she left the door. I used a little pit of creativity on the now famous polished kitchen table. Because of the terrible weather I was extremely frustrated that I couldn't be wheeled around to captured some more appealing images, however this one may bring a smile to a few faces, on yet another miserable day in Rochester.

You'll have to do what I do Nathan, and get yourself a macro studio set up, it doesn't take much space up and if you get someone to collect the specimens for you you'll be in business mate.......Most of my macro stuff is done this way these days as I've limited mobility myself, although not on the same scale as you I know.
This might have been taken indoors mate, but it's well shot and superbly presented, well done.....

That is some polished table,,, wish mine was like that. I might try something similar but i only have pigs as me and the wife have a collection of them, people think we are strange, they are probably right Wink

You need to pack your trunk and get up to my house if that is how polished your keep your table. Loads of black glass in my kitchen needing a good buff up WinkGrin.
This is absolutely beautiful Nathan. No matter how restricted you are in the home, I think that wonderfully creative mind of yours will find something to shoot, and delight us with. That is a pretty good idea that Ade suggested - macro. Hope you feel better by this evening. Moira
