(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Yes you can make a fine image out of the stuff on your table! Well set up and captured, and I love the "bokeh balls", however they came to be.

Minne, I'd classify this as a "found object" sort of thing. I was enjoying dinner at a local bar/restaurant. Some of the guests sitting to my right left for the evening. The bartender cleared the plates, silverware, and glasses, but left the salt and pepper shakers as they appear here, directly under one of the small bar lights. I studied this from my seat and decided to photograph the scene. The only thing I had to arrange and figure how to support was the camera. I left the shakers alone.

I laid the camera on its side, portrait mode, and then rolled up a cloth napkin to support the front of the lens shade. The was the extent of my ability to compose this photo.

hey Bob, this looks like a wonderful study of tones, and the perfect subject for your B/W treatment. I've come back to this image numerous times, I really like it. Good spotting for a found scene.

Thanks, Piet. Sometimes mindlessly staring at stuff in a bar works well.
