Well, This was fun. I set up baseballs to make them look as one soaring into focus. I ended up falling in love with the curves and stitching. The oldest ball that I had set in the background to be less bright was really most interesting to me, and soon became my subject.
I hope you enjoy the "architecture" and craftsmanship as I did. Thanks to MamaLu, I got to study them a little closer... This is straight off the camera and only cropped. I used the kitchen can lights set on dimmers and played with my speeds and depth of field. Below is a small sample of what I intended to do originally. If I could figure out how to roll and ball have stop on a tape trap without bobbling, I would try this with a long exposure and ONE ball.
Keep your eye on the sky !
