Mystique by Sapphene Mystique by Sapphene
Hey everyone! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Well, this is another piece from my first photography project, all film and negatives and that old stuff ;)

The project was to use one element of design to accomplish a principle of design (so 7 photos total; and I'll probably scan and upload my other favorites). Proportion and scale through the use of shapes was for this one.

Now, from a not so technical point of view, you all know how much I adore my tea set. On top of that, I love the concept of Alice in Wonderland, so it would seem only fitting that I play with scale and pay homage to the unusually beautiful in this way.

Regardless, I invite you to think of this in any way that comes to mind and share it with me :aww:

size: probably about 6" x 4"

featured: [link] go check out the other work! :D

Ohh, this is insanely nice! It's almost looking like a drawing! Can I draw this sometime? It's just so nice! I like to look at it, because it's all shiny, but I also like the title and the way you actually made this LOOK mysterious, with all the darkness and the way the composition is built up - very nice! And instant fav! :D

I love this picture! (I keep on thinking that a little Alice from "Alice in Wonderland" is going to pop her head around the corner of one of the cups) I typed that not reading your description o.o

I like this a lot. I love the black and white, and the few spots of bokeh in the background. Also, I like how the big handles is the perfect contrast to the little handle! This is an awesome shot! (:
