mundane monday–just under the wire

Mundane Monday almost got away from me this week, but I caught up with it just as it was getting ready to hand the baton off to Tuesday. I also used this pic for the Macro Mondays  group on Flickr.

Our youngest had a jazz band competition today in a town 2 1/2 hours away. (And man, they kicked some jazzboohiney. *snaps*) We started out before sunrise, so I couldn’t shoot before we left. When we got home tonight, there was only about 10 minutes of light remaining, so I busted into the craft cabinet, pulled out some pipe cleaners, wrapped them around a pencil, and started shooting.

I was in too much of a hurry to set up my tripod and pay attention to my displays. So, when I loaded the shots into Lightroom, my lack of care resulted in a lot of editing to try and fix the color and contrast issues. I may try this kind of shot again in the next week.
