Day 79 - Memories of Ice and Fire

My mom has this weird potpourri bowl thing, with these weird decorative pieces in it, comprised of fascinating textures, shapes, and other earthy fragments. There are these little twig ball things that I have pulled out for juggling purposes numerous times. I always enjoyed their pleasant shape but chaotic build.

I set up my LED box light on a shelf facing towards my camera on a tripod while holding the ball suspended on a string. The blue and orange hues were added in post simply by adjusting the white balance.
