To see a world in a grain of sand,

or in a coffee stain...

(inspired by Finnish blogger and superb photographer Taina of Vaskooli,
especially this)

Thanks Marja-Leena. We both seem to pay attention to the details :)

My Armenian friend could probably tell you your fortune based on that stain.

Taina, yes, we do have that in common. I must get back to some more macro photography - yours are an inspiration.

rouchswalwe, now that might be interesting!

That plate is an unusual object to photograph but with the light reflected from it and in all its simplicity it is all the more interesting.

Joe, yes, it is a very ordinary little bowl but made unusual by the stain and the act of photography and placement on the blog. The act of seeing and recording the ordinary and everyday... just like you do on your blog.
