Trying to photograph cross stitch in new and interesting ways is pretty much a waste of time. There's just no way to add interest to the picture(yes, I know the French stitchers manage to do beautiful still lifes-lives?), the stitching must speak for itself. But I'm always willing to showoff my lack of photography skills in an attempt to showcase my stitching. I can't seem to have one without the other. No matter how hard I try to become a better photographer, my photos seem to be lacking some kind of artistic quality. Below you will see my lame attempt at photographing a scarlet macaw in his natural habitat, duh, a tree. I told you it was L-A-M-E. Birds in cages seem to enjoy swings so here's another shot, he's just a swingin'. No I'm not on crack. Shame on you for thinking that.

Is he one handsome guy or what?

Beautiful piece - he is handsome. I love the frame you've put him in too. My husband probably thinks I'm a nutcase trying to come up with new ways to photograph my stitching and stash...when you're trying to figure out how to artistically showcase umpteen new charts you've purchased...then, we've hit the limit.
