Tea time in London
Spot of tea?
London, ON, November 2007 [Click to embiggen]
The room was filled with friends and family. They'd come to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah, and were now gathering one last time for brunch before going their separate ways home. The background buzz of smiling voices sharing a recent, happy memory was accompanied by the clatter of plates from the buffet tables. It was a happy, relaxed sound.
I was using my camera to capture faces I hadn't seen in months or years, and possibly wouldn't see again for a similar length of time. And in the middle of it all, I saw a single cup and saucer on an empty table. Somehow, I thought this captured the warmth and light that pervaded the room.
Your turn: When a picture of an event isn't a picture of the event at all. Please discuss.
One more thing: More bar mitzvah entries are posted here, here and here.
