Macro Monday: Shiny my meme

How I love shiny things.
I love shiny so much I used to have a collection of shiny things (secretly, it's still around here someplace).
I love this ribbon. I had to buy it and then I wrapped Indigo's brow band of her bridle in it. I love the rainbows of colour the light makes.
I also love prisms of all sorts of shiny, pretty glass.
My grandmother used to have a new yorker pentagon hood ornament thing hanging from the window in her breezeway. In the summer I used to lie on the floor and put my hands under the rainbows, fascinated by all the colours.
Things I buy, jewelry wise, are usually depending upon the shiny factor. Like I bought a necklace the other week that was made of blue glass beads. Now I honestly don't think I have anything to wear with it but I'll find something cause it's shiny. Or maybe it'll just sit on my lamp, hanging and being shiny.
I forgot to add, my aunt (as seen in comments as "Creeper Aunt") made a point a few years ago about my shiny "obsession". She said it must be because I am a dragon, being born in 1988.

I love shiny ribbon too! I never thought about wrapping the brow bands with it though! Great idea!

I love the shiny ribbon, too. Great subject for your camera. Much more challenging to photograph, too.
You did good!

BTW, I'm digging the beat of this song on your Playlist: 'Kids'. I just turned up the volume and went and brushed my teeth and washed my face to this song. hehe!

It took me about 30 shots to get this one, even with a tripod. Any teeny movement I got blurry. This is why I bought a remote the other day but I gotta wait for it to come in.

Lisa- MGMT is an awesome band. They are pretty old actually but only recently become popular. I used to listen to them in the 90's when I was younger. We went out on the weekend and they started to play this song and we were dancing then it started skipping. They never re-played it we were upset. It's such a fun song.

Wrapping it on your browband? How neat! I should try that out some time.

Also hi I just found your blog and I must say that I like it very much! I will be commenting more soon.

Lovely shinny and bright pic there! The colors are fab!
I know...it takes me many- MANY shots, angles and time to get what I wish to when I decide on a shot! I see it... just can't seem to capture it sometimes!
