Subscribing to the K I S S Theory

Back to my studio in the kitchen for today's photo.  I have been looking at a little piece for some time now. It's a pretty little thing so I wanted to create something simple with it. I set it up on a white backdrop on the kitchen table. I put a little home made grid on the flash and started taking pictures.
I took about 50 pictures with the flash and camera at different angles. It didn't take long to weed it down to about 5 that looked good. Pointing the flash by hand my aim was off a lot. Some were invariably out of focus. This one was the winner. It isn't exactly what I had pictured in my mind but I think it actually looks better.  I better get this posted. Have to get this in before midnight.
