What can you do on a dreary winter day ? Take pictures ... I gather bread clips (little plastic ties for bags of bread) in a transparent plastic cup. Pentax K3 + HD DFA 100 mm f/2.8 MACRO AW with flash, 1/180 sec @ f/8.

Do you collect them just for this purpose?

No but they prove useful now and then. I made pictures with paper clips with my Minolta film equipment years ago that were really colorful and esthetically pleasing. Macro lenses help us discover "hidden treasures" sometimes.

That's a different type of collection. I usually lose them before I've finished the loaf.
