Today’s Random Object is provided by Karina Ramirez!
I examined the pen Karina selected for Random Object Wednesday. It was a gift she received to help her remember her time in Ecuador.
I happened to have a map so I began my shoot using the map as a background.
The pen has a variety of colors, patterns and textures. Although I thought it would be best not to compete with these elements, I decided to use equally bright and busy backgrounds—stripes and polka dots.
The textured face is my favorite part of the pen.
I thought I was finished with this photo shoot. It was just a matter of scheduling the blog. But during that time I went to Europe and Karina asked for a postcard as a souvenir. She said I could mail it or bring it back with me.
When I returned from the trip I presented the postcard to her and she reminded me that I needed to write a message.
Write a message? But what do I write?
Time passed and I was at a loss. The postcard got shuffled around—I knew I had to write a message but put it off.
But after having a very pleasant conversation with Karina, I knew what to write and also thought it would be fun to combine it with her Random Object.

One thought on “Random Object Wednesday: Memories of Ecuador”
My favorite is the pen and map because of the colors and theme. I also like how you incorporated the pen and postcard by writing.
