In Chinatown, at “Woks ‘n’ Things”: Part Two

NOTE: I have processed these images in black and white, because I felt color distracted from the simplicity of the wonderful designs.

Each has also been run through Photoshop’s (TM) Smart Blur filter, in small, but varying amounts.

You name, it's here!  From teapots, to spoons, to kitchen scales...

    • So pleased you like my ‘methods’, smacked! I’ve always had ‘the eye’, but I can tell you it was perfected during eight years spent as a videographer! Time was money, and I had to frame the right shots without a lot of thought! It’s been second nature for over three decades…but I am guilty of ‘cropping a bit too tightly’ in-camera for still shots, so many times I’ll also do a ‘backed off’ shot, then re-crop in Photoshop.

    • No, just bought the heart-shaped biscuit cutter and an oversized tea ball, so I can make ‘mugs’ of loose tea rather than one small cup! The B/W treatment made for a more cohesive approach here, as the store is really not very large, and so much is jumbled together!
