Glimmering things, glistening things.


Glimmering things, glistening things.

A Sunny day dawdle at the breakfast table.

Even on weekday mornings when I have no time, I often end up getting wrapped up in photographing my breakfast table — maybe its the glistening and glimmering things on it.

At the sight of honey, jam and maple syrup glistening in the clear light of sunny days, I somehow end up in an unplanned photo session.

During these impromptu morning sessions, the brilliant sunlight usually comes flooding in, so I often put some sort of material in the window to soften the intensity, taking photos from above and then from the side.

I usually end with 3 or 4 shots using my iPhone. After removing the blind from the window, however, it would dawn on me: “wait a minute…, wouldn’t this look good in a side shot?” and I would start photographing again.

Eventually I start thinking other angles would also be great to capture the glistening aspect of the breakfast table items. When I finally awaken a little from my reverie, I realize that I’m already running late. I proceed to wolf down my breakfast, which by this time has already cooled, and rush off to work.
