When I saw the Photo 101 assignment for day 16 pop into my inbox a few minutes ago, I had a little laugh, grabbed my camera, turned off the lights and turned a spotlight on the first biggish-print bible I could get my hands on. I knew just exactly the shot and effect I wanted for this assignment, “Treasure.” As for close-up, I almost had the camera touching the page to get the detail of the text in the semi-darkness. I got what I wanted on the first shot. I might try another set of photos tomorrow, D.V., should inspiration strike.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
