Everyday Objects: Plates, Bowls and Espresso Cups

Taking a Fresh Look at Everyday Objects.

When I saw the title of this week’s CFFC, my first thought was, “Oh, I think I’ll give this one a miss!”

I knew I didn’t have any pictures of plates, nor did I think I could work up any enthusiasm to create any.


……half way through the morning  I noticed the pattern made by some plates on racks in a kitchen cupboard.

On the shelf above were some little dipping bowls we use for olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

(It helped that the work surfaces and the tiles are black/dark grey; also that the light from the window was good.)

In another cupboard these little espresso cups were posing like this, so out they came too.

In all I really enjoyed my half hour playing around with these everyday objects.  I tried something minimalist with forks, but that one didn’t work.  Ah well, you win some and you lose some.

A million thanks to Cee for once again getting me to think outside the box with this week’s challenge:

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Dishes, Pots, Pans and Silverware.


I think I feel a mini-series coming on: “Everyday Objects” .

 I’ve not taken any Pots, Pans or Silverware yet, though the Silverware category might turn out to be Stainless Steel!
