Sometimes, when I don’t have something new or specific to photograph for these weekly posts, I’ll search my home for something already on hand. Like this mask, for example. I saw it hanging on my mirror, and I thought it might make for a nice, pre-Halloween celebration post.
Instead, I got distracted by the different materials that make up the mask. It’s nothing fancy. I think it cost me maybe $10 or $15 at a Halloween store a few years ago. That doesn’t make it any less pretty, though. I love how the soft feathers make a dainty flower appear so rough, and the way the sparkles on the mask manage to both set everything off while drawing your eye to them.
It’s such a beautiful contrast of colours. Can you forgive me for choosing this picture instead of one celebrating Halloween?
