I’ve been posting a few pics from my husband’s experiments in macro photography (here and here). It’s not directly interior-design-related, but the pictures are so interesting. This latest is the most surprising of all.


It’s a chess piece and board from a set we purchased in Vietnam several years ago. The piece here, a pawn, is tiny in reality, no more than an inch tall. As a result, I’d never really looked at it in detail. This close up, I’m surprised to find it almost seems to have a personality! It’s actually a bit eery. I like the way the chessboard becomes a vast landscape extending all the way to the horizon.
