Cold and Hot – a momentary lapse of reason

I’m still not back into full-fledged shooting yet, instead taking the time to clear up some personal and home tasks. But the urge to photograph has been rumbling (I think that’s what that was) and I thought I would poke around in my kitchen this evening. These results are what happens when you look around in the silverware strainer in the sink with a reverse-mounted Super-Takumar 50mm at f/2. The first shot took on a cool look because I used an LED flashlight to illuminate the scene. The second shot was done with just the overhead tungsten lighting and daylight white balance. With the exception of some contrast adjustments and a little added vignette, no other fancy processing involved. I hope to get back out there and start exploring again soon. Pentax K20D, Super-Takumar 50mm (reversed).

    Oh, I like these descriptions of hot and cold. Of course hot is warmer, so it appeals more, which is just how it should be. Perfectly done. 🙂

    Who knew flatware could be so interesting?
