Around the house: kitchen art

When I was conducting online photography classes, one of the assignments I offered was "Kitchen Art." Like most of my assignments, it was primarily about seeing rather than technique. Anyone can learn technique. Not everyone can see.

So when I saw this tea kettle on the burner, I was struck by its rounded forms and the way it sat so starkly against the back wall.

And now that I see it here, I know exactly how I'm going to approach it again. And again. There's a lot here to work with that might not be apparent at first. So yeah, you're going to see this kettle a number of times in the near future.
