    ... you took a picture of a teapot?

    There's also some computer-looking thingie on the right side. The edge of the frame cuts it off, though: I'd have preferred either seeing it at a more acute angle for the 'edgy' look, or possibly just have included all of it in the classic style.

    And what's with the colors on the teapot, anyway?

    :rolleyes: Mike

    Dude, that's the water dispenser on the fridge. I know fridges have all kinds of flashy light things these days, but still. So are we supposed to be making some connection between the hot teapot and the cold water? I don't get it.

    It's amazing how, when we view the one we love, we don't even see all that might surround her (him) :smile:.

    Congratulations on your new baby.

    Sigh. It's going to be O.K. Just repeat after me: the film cooler is not digital. the film cooler is not digital... :D :D

    I like the angular lines of the black thing juxtaposed with the curvilinear lines of the teapot. The see-through effect in the round thing in the middle makes it really special. I can understand why it took half a year to make this image.:wink:

    Very nice.

    Congradulations! It should be good with English Breakfast or Earl Grey.

    Oh my, you people are just...ugh. Haha. :tongue:

    And the teapot looks weird because...I...uh...took the picture with a camera type that must not be named and its lens likes to flare up a lot.

    The fridge stores food and film.

    How 'bout an introduction? Tell us about your new baby! ;-) Have you picked a name yet? What format? (8x10? I can't quite tell from the snapshot..) What lens(es)?

    (BTW, "Congratulations!", since I thoughtlessly missed that on my first post in this thread!)

    Oh look, that black box has a hole, what it's the use of it?
    :tongue:
    Kidding.

    Congrats for the buy, I hope you enjoy it much!
