Mosaic Monday: Berries and Tea



I was eating blueberries one morning, as I considered what to use as my next Mosaic Monday subject. The sunshine was pouring in through the window, and I wanted to try out my 50mm f1.4 lens. So I grabbed one of my mother's favorite decorative teacups, and began to snap some shots.

And that's the entire story of this mosaic. Sometimes I can be such a camera nerd. lol But somehow, I feel a teacup series of photos coming on... :)

Now let's have some mosaic fun! Here are the instructions:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  21. Wow Mary, great photographs, as usual. I will have to copy your idea if you don't mind. I always have blueberries in the fridge. Sadly I don't have such a good camera, but I am usually happy with my photographs albeit there are usually lots of the rejects on the cutting room floor!!

    Have a good week, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

  25. Oh, the light play is so fun to photography, and you have captured the light and the luminosity perfectly! A great subject...the pansy teacup with the spoon and berries. As Always a stunning mosaic!

  26. Just divine! Such a simple setup, and so totally compelling because of that simplicity, enhanced by the lighting and depth of field. Magazine worthy for sure.
