I've been thinking about details recently. What I see in this photo is a detail shot of a little metal tea pot. I've always liked this picture, the shiny metal, the matte feel of the black wooden handle and how it fades into insubstantiality. What I think is the cut and curves of the metal plate seem beautiful, almost a work of art.
Art is beauty,
the perpetual invention of detail,
the choice of words,
the exquisite care of execution.
– Theophile Gautier
