This is the rosary i picked up in Rome last year. While I am not Catholic, I am a Christian and I use it as a reminder to pray. I felt it was appropriate as I am going through a tough time right now.
I shot this on my old Canon Rebel T1i/500d with the stock 18-55mm lens using a cheap macro extender tube. It was lit with a Daylight CFL in a hardware clamp light that can be picked up at any hardware store.
