Accidental Scene
Lens: Vivitar 80-200mm Camera: K2000 Photo Location: Idaho ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1s Aperture: F8

I had bought this old, antique silver tea service at a yard sale. It was sitting on my dining table when I bent down to pick up something. When I raised up, this was what I saw, with the wine-colored draperies in the background. The light was from a sliding glass door nearby. I thought it looked cool, so this was the finished product.

Great shot. There is a tea service somewhere around the house. I think I will have a go.

yeah, this is a cool shot - probably one you couldn't plan if you tried.

Great capture! The red is the perfect backdrop for the antique finish of the tea set.
