Artist's Description

The other day I was sitting in a café and for some reason thinking of objects around me, their purpose and shapes, the materials they are made of. A bit of ordinary in a non typical context caught my eye.

Now and then I have to go through extra pain to get an image, like in this case, where some of the staff and patrons commented my obsession of indiscriminately recording surroundings with certain movements and facial expressions, the Esperanto of body language and I have to confess, occasionally a rather loud one. Not that I am particularly concerned about it as by now, after all the years of engaging in similar I am well and truly immune.

I filled the frame with a subject, always a good thought in photography, and ended up with one substance composition where a pepper shaker sits on a curiously finished steel table top. Café lights helped the background by adding color of the environmental warmth to an otherwise clinically cold tabletop, while the shaker benefited from the street neon ads whose light found a way to the interior of the building.

I was pleased with the resulting image, the almost abstract display of contemporary objects and impact the diverse light quality can have on their character.
