I inherited this old sock darner years ago, I have never used it, it just sits on a shelf and every so often I like to pick it up and feel it. It is amazing to think that once people used to darn their own socks, now it is so easy to pop off and buy a back of six for absolutely nothing.
I decided to photograph it the other day. One of the wonderful things about photography is that it makes you look at things differently, tactile objects that inspire you, everyday objects that would look good in macro or that catch the light in a way you wouldn't normally notice. Sometimes I find myself doing an imaginary 'click' when I see something, does anyone else do this?
