Paper Clips/ Macro Monday

Bent plastic-covered wire (sounds more exotic than paper clip, eh?)


Seven paper clips

So colorful too.

Jan said...

Pretty cool. These photos would be great, framed for an office.

Kim, USA said...

wow this is super cool. love how vibrant is the color.

Lois Evensen said...

Yes, very colorful. And, I can't help but think of the history of how paperclips played a part in the Norwegian Resistance Movement during WWII.

As always,a great design in your pic (even if these paperclips wouldn't have been so colorful)!

Kathy said...

Hmmm. I'm wondering: Did you dump them out and let them fall where they may or did you ever so gingerly arrange them in position?

I hope Lois will tell us about the paperclip and its Norwegian resistance connection. I'm intrigued!

We used to collect chicken rings as a children. These remind me of that. I can see kids stringing these for a necklace.

Farmchick said...

Excellent detail on that first paperclip shot.

Ann said...

I have squit bottles to put my glue in, the lid's gone, I use the plastic cover clips to seal the top. The plastic means it won't rust.

I must bring my camera ti work to take a photo for you.

A rainbow of paperclips! I would buy them!!!!!!

Jack said...

I believe the technical term is triple reverse curl wire attachment gizmos. Very colorful.

edenhills said...

Just love the rainbow of colors!

A paperclip is called a trombone in French. That definitely makes it seem more than what it is. ;-)

I like this macro. The colors are nice too!

Cool! Reminds me that I have an Eiffel Tower paper clip sorry covered wire somewhere. I wish I knew where!

Cecilia Artista said...

Great colorful macro shots!

Jay said...

But not just ordinary paper clips! Those ones are exotic!

I don't like plain ones either. I have some shaped like a doggy bone! LOL!

GrandmaK said...

How fun! right and cheerful on this early Monday morning for me! Cathy

NatureFootstep said...

cool. Actually t looks good. I have not seen this clip in Sweden. :)

Andy said...

I can remember when paper clips where just one simple bland colour. Thanks to new ideas this has all changed. Also thanks to to your photography skills you have enhanced them even more.

McGillicutty said...

so simple but love the colors... nicely done. I'm following now, trying to get a little library of inspiration going here... :0)

So clever!! MB

I love all the colors!

Janie said...

Your photos show great color and detail. You do manage to make even paper clips look exotic!

Kerri said...

Excellent! The colors are so vivid. Superb images!

Nikki . said...

Cool photos... love the first one...

VP said...

Simple and brilliant, love the bright colors!

Genie said...

Your shots are so bright and cheery...the problem is I want some of them for my room at school. They are so cool. Bet they would get the attention of the kids. I like the simplicity of the macro shots. You need nothing else but the metal clips. They are perfect.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Well-done. For some reason these "clips" remind me I need to get a haircut.

I think I'd have to say that you're a "matron of macros." Which is rather like a patron of the arts. But patron is patristic and that won't work for you, so "matron" it is.

And I don't mean that in a matronly way.

Evelyn said...

Nice macro shots. Colourful!

Rose said...

Great close-up!

Eden said...

Very nice macros shots.

Rebecca said...

Do you have a macro lens/setting? The detail on the first shot is amazing.
