On tonight's menu...
A simple corner
London, Ontario, February 2007 [Click to embiggen]
I take pictures at restaurants. Strange pictures, often captured in the fleetingly few minutes between the moment we sit down and the time the food is delivered. I don't pose my subjects. I shoot quietly, sometimes focusing on the faces of my family, sometimes on the objects on the table. Inanimate things are easier, because they don't move. When the light is dim and you're not using flash, static compositions tend to have a higher technical success rate.
I thought the edge of the menu made for a simple study in geometry and shadows.
Your turn: What else speaks of simplicity to you?
