Sometimes the simplest things can make for an interesting image. As I was looking for something to photograph I saw that my wife had left her tape measure on top of the purple material she was working with. I like the random curves of the tape and the jumble of metric and imperial numbers. Shooting with the Canon 7D and the 24-70 F2.8 I choose f4.5 to give some depth of field but not to much. Focal length was 68mm at 1/60 sec and 6400 ISO.
