The location was in the kitchen of my home in
The "Take It!" came after having hung this newly
polished copper bottomed frying pan on the wall of my kitchen to add a little atmospheric warmth to a cold corner, I had bought the rough pan some months ago after finding it in a
thrift store. It had reminded me of a whole set of pots and pans by "Revere Ware" which my Mother was thrilled to have gotten as a gift from my Dad. She used them for the rest of her
life. I had the priviledge of cleaning these utensils as a part of "doing the dishes" previous to our getting a dishwashing machine.
I purchased the used pan and took it to the
plating shop I frequent and had them straighten and polish the piece. I was pleasantly surprised at how good a job they did.
It took a while to decide what to do with the pan
once It was finished. This corner location happened to jump out at me as being perfect.
While the pan cannot serve as a mirror due to the
imperfections in the surface of the metal, One can get some blurred images reflected in the copper.
The After Take: calls for me to note that when
taking the photo of the pan I purposely included some of the kitchen window to show a little bit of the green bottles I had placed in the upper window frame. This shot includes some
of the bottles located on the sill of the same window.
While it is not a piece of formal art - this helps
add meaningful atmosphere to the kitchen.
Here is hoping fall is starting out mild for you
as it is for us.
Wishing you my best,
