Recently I took several pictures of a stack of onions and mangoes my wife had stacked near our kitchen’s sink. I still enjoy viewing these photographs mainly because of the fun associated with these images.
This morning it happened again. After breakfast early in the morning—6:30 a.m. (-5 GMT)—I saw a vegetable grater that was winking his eyes at me and laughing out loud. At least in my imagination. I’ve seen this object trillions of times, but never noticed that it looked like a metallic robot with dark eyes and a rolling smile.
Before I go on, let me say that photography has changed my perspective of the world. Now I see things with a different vision. It’s like discovering a new reality around me. I look up at the sky and I can see white and gray horses, trees, bunnies, or tigers floating swiftly by. The clouds are not clouds any more, they are something else. At age 62 and having retired, with ample time to do what I enjoy most, it’s a blessing. Life is fun again, just the way it was when I was a kid in Changuinola.
Now back to my story. After noticing the metallic laughing grater, I thought it would be fun to put a napkin over its head to resemble a white wig or hair, and take a couple of picture and see what my camera came up with.
This is what came out of my Canon PowerShot A720 IS lens. Here we go.
My kitchen is turning out to be a fun place to be. Who knows what will happen tomorrow? Good Day.
