We have some interesting artifacts on display around the house. This copper pot is used for heating water on an old iron stove … but we have it on display.
Today I put it in the sunlight of the kitchen window. The shot was good, but slightly high-key, so I over-layed with a rock-texture photographed down the hill … and this was the result!
