A couple of weeks ago, I took my camera out at the breakfast table and decided to explore the marmelade jar. The resulting post was entitled Jammed. (If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to click on the link. I'll wait here.)
I'm including another image from that series because I often run into a bit of a photographer's dilemma in that I simply can't decide which image from a given series is my favorite. This one stuck in my mind because of the light. It paints out over the curved surface of the jar's label in a way that reminds me why this has always been one of my comfort foods. The softness of the light is something I didn't plan for when I set up the picture: it just happened.
The label's details also invite further investigation. I will read anything I can get my hands on when I'm alone at the breakfast table. And when I run out of newspapers, magazines, geek trade papers and school memos, I'll pore over product labels, too. I'm weird that way, but I hope you've enjoyed this second glimpse at my early-morning world.
