Coiled

by Helen Hooker March. 03, 2012 6786 views

As I wandered around the supermarket this afternoon buying the coming week??s food I found myself pondering what I could use as the subject for my daily photo. As I picked up a pack of fusilli pasta it occurred to me that I might just have found my subject. I decided to take a close up and as I position the pasta on the windowsill the sun came out, shining through it and creating some lovely shadows. Given the strong lines in the image it seemed a good choice to convert to black and white.

[i]Coiled, not yet boiled. (it's silly, I know, but that jumped into my head while I was reading your title)[/i]

The light is lovely here.

As soon as I saw this photo, I knew it was on your famous window sill! I've gotta find one of those in my house!! The light creates a lovely softness to the hard edges and makes it seem transparent. Another mundane-to-marvelous shot!
