February 7th pictures — fun household illusions

Couldn’t be bothered to get new pictures outside today; it looked a little uninviting.


A very nice little detail on an old oil heater that my mom painted.

I saw this reflection earlier and tried to get a few pictures. I don’t like it nearly as much as the one from yesterday, but I still find it interesting. While it may be duller, it does offer a window out, literally, with a little patch of sky.


It’s a reflection in the pan I was washing, see. Suds!


Edit: Decided to add one of the pictures that got me started in today’s picture-taking campaign. The underside of this baking sheet is obviously quite worn from many years of use, with all kinds of scratches and discoloration. Up close, and with the light reflecting off it, it almost looked like a little universe or something. If you’re strung out on acid, anyway, like I was.


I was not actually on acid.

Ultimately I couldn’t get the picture I wanted — I maintain that it looked at least three times cooler than this in real life — but at least you get a little idea.

Some other household textures:

  1. Terrific! You got such wonderful shots of such otherwise ordinary things! I am going to forward a link to this post to my best friend who is designer and artist- I think she’ll find it very interesting.

    • Thank you so much, Inga. I’m very flattered and so glad you enjoy my photos! It’s great to get such a compliment from someone whose work you’re a fan of. Thanks again! 🙂
