Shanghai, China, May 2007 [Click to enlarge]
My eye is drawn to patterns like a child is drawn to a bowl of fudge-topped ice cream. When I saw these pristine plates in the restaurant of our hotel, I had to take a closer look. What really got me was how they were lit. The countertops were made of a translucent, brightly-backlit surface. I liked the resulting glow from below.
Your turn: Look really closely at these plates. Is all as it seemed when you first saw the image?
