I took three photos with my fujifilm Instax this morning. This was my third and as I watched it develop I could see it was the kind of picture I’ve been trying to take with this camera.
It is intimate, filled with feeling and substance. The colors, shapes and angle of the photo make a good composition.
And, in a way, it’s also a portrait of Jon. I don’t stack the dish drain in this (what seems to me haphazard) way, bowls up, cups on their side, dish facing front.
I make and orderly and solid foundation of dishes, cups and bowls turned to drain, so I can stack them high, a daily sculpture of form and balance.
Of course, no one would know this but me and Jon (and it’s probably not the kind of thing Jon takes notice of), so the title gives what information the photo doesn’t.
