Kitchen Stars

I’ve been working on a series of wabi-sabi photos for my photo group final, which has to be a series. I may not have enough photos for my series on the beach, so this is my Plan B. Here is one of the photos I am working on- my favorite wooden spoon and some star anise.  I had thought the series would be in black and white, but I really like this one better in color! There is a very slight reflection  and shadow on the cookie sheet background which don’t show up in the black and white.

Wabi-sabi is a Japanese aethetic based on acceptance of transience and incompleteness. Characteristics include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
