Project Blue, Take Two: Seldom Used Objects

Anna Carson's Project Blue is on it's second day. I thought today, I'd offer some seldom used items from around the house. The first picture is is not seldom used... it's the breakfast (served on a blue plate) that I almost burned in my enthusiasm for trying to photograph blue things this morning. It actually tastes much better than it looks and I like it crispy, so...

The "Wonder" lamp is something I bought in the late 1960's or early 1970's - either during one of the two famous black-outs or for a camping trip - I honestly don't remember which. It's been with me for at least 45 years and it's only on it's 2nd battery, which tells you how often I use it. Still, it has come in handy during power outages. Doesn't give much light, but some... Cleaning supplies, alas get much less use than they should. Much less. My mother is weeping in Heaven. Had to include the last two photos in which my assistant appears. The profile one is her Alfred Hitchcock imitation.

I love your blue plate--especially the way the light reflects off the edge of it. Your breakfast also looks good. :)

That last shot is fascinating! Very avant garde.

Thanks for all your kind comments on my photos. I really appreciate them!
