Perhaps I should have repositioned these utensils to make for a better composition, but this is exactly how I found them.

Some of those look like they’ve been around a long time–must be good friends!

Yes, some of those handles are nice and worn.

I think this is the Lemony’s gazing eye isn’t it.
Something looks strange was, the Chop-sticks.
Were the lines painted ?

Yes, there is something odd. 🙂 Are you talking about the lines around the image itself? It was actually a mistake that I didn’t have time in that moment to correct. I think I accidentally tapped my thumb as I was exiting the program and selected a “frame” for the image. I didn’t have time to go back in and remove it. I’m not sure exactly how I did it, but there it is. There are some chopsticks that are still covered in their paper sleeves, is that maybe what you’re seeing?

I like this. I have a “thing” about ordinary stuff. Years ago, I looked around my house and decided that I had some really ugly stuff left over from forever. I dumped every last piece of anything that my eye did not like. That included pots and utensils. Now, I do not keep anything that I don’t like to look at. I like to look at these. What app are you using to create that surreal effect?

You and my mother have the same “thing” about ordinary stuff. 🙂 . . . I processed in Silver Effex and used one of the low ISO Kodak films (I can’t remember which one (but very low ISO).

Love this hint of sinister ‘noir”

🙂 Great! I felt it was there, but didn’t know if others did.

A friend once told me it seemed sacrilegious to sweep pine needles and dead leaves out of the way before I took shots of a beautiful orange mushroom, so ever since then you see it exactly as I found it, if at all possible.

My approach, too! I move myself instead.

Nice, nice, nice !

Hi, mfr, so nice to see you! Thank you.
I’m not sure moving anything would have improved on the composition – the explosion of angles and textures is fun to negotiate. Sweet/ tough image – I think it’s lovely.

Thanks, Richard. Great words.

Excellent B&W. 🙂
Nothing like cutting edge technology. 😀

Patina is the word that springs to mind.

Yes! That’s it! 🙂

Looks like a pretty good composition to me.

Thank you, Shimon. I’m glad you find it so! I’m grateful for your feedback.
