Well at least I don't have to sweat validation out. That's already been done. I don't know why there was any perceived misdemeanor.

And since I've been asked where I got the bowls from, well they cost me $1.oo each in the supermarket. They are my everyday bowls, sometimes dessert, sometimes soup, sometimes side salad bowls. I have four, there's an extra yellow one.

Wonderful light and exposure, interesting subjects and colour. I just feel the lens you've used (focal length) has distorted/curved the surface on which they rest such that the composition feels curved, lopsided.

Simple, ordinary items with clean lines and great contrast. My favorite in this challenge.
