Project 365 - The Muse

I have taken many, many images of this singing bowl.  I am intrigued by it's beauty.  The way the brass catches the light.  The vibrance of the green. But try as I might, my attempts at a portrait, that does it justice, alludes me.

Today, I carried it outside.  Out into the diffuse light of a cloudy afternoon.  It sat on the deck cafe table for awhile and then off to the black walnut bench under the cedar trees.  I thought that a change of scenery might do the trick.  But, to my eye, I am no closer to capturing all that I see.

I guess there should be some mystery to a muse.  Some allusiveness that keeps you coming back. Someday...
