Shiny bowl, a photo by Helen in Wales on Flickr.

46/52 for the group 52 in 2013

The set theme was: Shiny

If I remember correctly, this shiny pottery bowl originally contained pâté. It was far too good to throw out once it was all eaten, so now it decorates our window ledge.



In other news, I am really really tired, but I have done a lot of useful stuff this week. Also, I might have got rid of a huge responsibility, but I'll not say anything until everything is signed and sealed.

If the all does go well, I'll gain an extra day of free time each week, which means I'll be able to put a bit more effort into my photography and possibly even be able to think about writing fiction again.

Best wishes re: your responsibility-shedding and hope you get some rest soon!

Thanks. Things could still go pear-shaped and I have the irrational fear that posting about it might somehow jinx it, but we have had an offer on Dad's bungalow, which we have accepted. If we can finalise the deal before Christmas, it will save a lot of worry about it standing empty, not to mention it will mean that I don't have to keep visiting, hence giving me more time for lesson planning and actually relaxing.

Fingers crossed for that free day. Also, I would have saved the bowl, too.

the bowl is beautiful
Thank you
It is a wonderful example of the wabi-sabi principle of finding beauty in ordinary things.
I always think of November as a wabi-sabi month.

Thank you for the reminder about the wabi-sabi principle. I tried to develop an eye for it when I did my year of taking a photo every day.

Ivy beat me to it. :)
Such a simple, practical, beautiful piece.

Thanks. I really like the wabi-sabi principle. A few years ago, when I was taking a photo every day, I tried to develop an eye for it as I searched for subjects.
