A recent picture that I liked

This was at Maialino. We had a 2001 Poggio di Sotto Brunello (delish!) and a 1998 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco (thanks, Max!). I kind of became fascinated by the different textures and surfaces and shadows in this scene. I actually took a picture three different ways. Maybe good wine does that. Makes you more aware like that.

I've had that same sensation about textures and surfaces when I saw this Chardin in person:

Someday, I want to move the glossy silver surface to the walnut, the brown ribbed surface to the peaches, and the fuzzy red-yellow surface to the cup.
