Know When to Fold 'Em

I was feeling rather uninspired today, so I checked out the Daily Shoot challenge:

Paper can have texture, be folded, made into an airplane, or crumpled/torn. Make something with paper, then make a photo.

My son has a huge bag of these award tickets, you know, the kind you "win" at arcades or game places. Feed in a quarter for a chance to hit the Jackpot, get a couple of tickets, then after you've spent $20 to earn 50 tickets, redeem said 50 tickets for a pack of gum. Yup, you all know what I'm talking about.

On occasion, the boy actually hits the Jackpot, and his friends pool all their tickets together. Thus we have amassed over 1000 tickets. The tickets are paper and folded - and thus I have my subject for today's picture.

A color version:

And a Black and White-ish version with texture:

He's been talking about redeeming the tickets for a "big item" this weekend. Maybe I'll follow up with a shot of what he and his friends picked out....

Great shots for the challenge... I looked but couldn't get it going for another paper shot!

Nicely done with the challenge. I really like that second one. It has character and looks sort of vintage.

Great idea for some macro shots
