I struggled with this photo because it’s frankly not that interesting.
I tried to make it better, even cropping some things out in an edit but realized it lost some sense of the moment.
The Coke Zero Sugar on the counter that I needed to eliminate from my fridge.
The hint of the cutting board my niece made me for Christmas.
The temporarily placed computer that was getting set-up, but I’m finding I LIKE IT THERE, right in the heart of the kitchen.
The tension of the counter’s edge and the floor along the bottom of the photo.
The realization that no filter is going to make this image better.
It’s just me making my mom’s soup, again and again, on a cold wintry day.
And that’s just dandy.
