Tissue Box and Book Photo

A few days ago I laid my iPhone on the table.  When I looked down at the screen the above picture is what I saw.  At first I couldn’t imagine what it was.  So I snapped a picture.

When I picked up the phone I saw it was on top of a tissue box. That’s the blue and beige design up front.  The tissue box was on top of a book.  The black and white globe and sky is the cover of that book of surreal photomontage by Grete Stern called Suenos.

    I was entranced by this photo even before reading your post about it. Isn’t it amazing how there is wonder and mystery (and art) in even the smallest, most unlikely things. Thank you for capturing it here.
