Somewhere in the Kitchen

This was a practice shot, taken to test something or other. I really can't remember what. It does remind me of the old 35mm days. It's a "... for goodness sake, use up the roll and get the photos to the processors" type of shot. They often work well and this one was very pleasing. Perhaps it's because we relax about the performance. No need to prove anything. Just be in the moment. I notice there's a sponge in there - could it be Spongebob Squarepants of Bikini Bottom television fame? Many clients find it hard to relax and be in the moment. Anxieties of all sorts take up psychic space. We all have worries of course, but when they frustrate our ability to enjoy ourselves and have fun, they need to be tackled. I can see quite a lot of things going on in the photograph. Just stare at the colours, and see what you can see.
