THE STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE
Afternoon Tea is all about shadows and reflections. The more you look the more you see.
The shadows of the cup and saucer on the table and the light they reflect back into the tea. The shadow of the teabag on the left side of the cup, the small tea leaves that have floated to the top of the tea bag, and the way the string moves down the side of the cup into the saucer...even the tiny tag on the end leaves a shadow on the saucer. Lastly, and not to be ignored, is the handle on the cup...poised and ready for you to take a sip.
It's amazing how something so simple as a cup of tea can be so multi-faceted.
