Still waiting to be washed up !!!
Natural light through the kitchen window, and there to greet me when I enterd the room - who could resist - I mean taking the photo, not washing it up Wink
Hand held, so not the sharpest of definition, but its all about the light and not the colander anyway.
Many thanks for C & C on my seedhead yesterday. I had not expected it to attract so much attention - its good to be surprised at times Smile
Thanks for looking
Helen

You're a woman after my own heart....finding everyday objects in a new light is such fun. The kitchen always seems to provide fertile territory for such.
Love it!

You have quite an amazing portfolio here. Fantastic work -- all of your shots.
This one particularly caught my attention for its simplicity and the wonderful light.
I liked your explanation as well.
Nicely captured.
