love, love that cup and saucer

i have a weakness for items like that and have a curio cabinet full and vases throughout the house

the setting you've so beautifully photographed certainly feels like a throwback to times past
Bill Phillips: A nice bit of bone china and really the only way one should drink tea

His inkstand, cup and vase of flaars too

I wonder if he pronounces vase as vays or vawws or simply vaas?
Bill Phillips: He would pronounce it properly

Excellent light quality in this masterpiece. Our old mate Elgar was more like Sibelius than Beethoven.
Bill Phillips: Certainly not Beethoven He was influenced by Brahms I think and he was also a violinist in an orchestra playing Dvorak's 6th Symphony conducted by Dvorak himself.
A nice setting quite similar to my post in a way
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Martin!
you used your camera skills well
Bill Phillips: you old flatterer
A lovely tasbletop picture all ready and waiting for you, I really like it.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian, a slow shutter speed and a high ISO gave a surprisingly decent result
I can imagine him just having got up from the table smile
Bill Phillips: I am pleased tohave conveyed that impresion Tom
His tea must be cold now, answer your phone
Bill Phillips: I let it go to the answering machine ....
A very nice still life, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Frank
You can't fool me.
True or artificial? When I see certain flowers, I always have doubts. So much fake to be true or vice versa.
Bill Phillips: I am not sure to be honest. I thought they were real but I am not so sure now
