Award Shortlist   


By helenlinda
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

Well spotted with the light and shadows Helen.
I thought at first to crop the dark space at the bottom out,but when you cover it up,you realise it is needed !!

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!

When you showed me this in the staffroom at dinnertime, from a distance, it reminded me of those old Smash adverts, do you remember? The ones with those silly talking aliens Grin
