    Hi, I just saw you blog. Found it via your comment over at Chris Klug’s blog. I’m Swede, which is why I paid extra notice to your comment. 🙂 This image is beautifully captured, I must say. The light bounced in nicely. And the words that goes with it gives that little extra.

The apartment that Mrs. Kaadian and I are staying in was already furnished. Very tastefully done.

We do not however have an electric kettle. What we do have is what looks like a cast-iron kettle. It looks rather asian. In face when we were out exploring the local shops we noticed that there a few little Asian markets that sold specialty food, paper and house-hold products. One of the stores had pots that looked just like ours but in a variety of different sizes.

It doesn’t have a whistle like other European boiling kettles and it doesn’t turn itself off with a satisfying “ping” like an electric kettle, so we have to watch the pot. “A watched pot might never boil” but when you are eagerly awaiting your first cup of instant coffee of the day, yummm,  I keep a watchful eye on the stove and the kettle !

I used the 35mm f2.0 lens with the SB 800 flash triggered remotely off to the side. I wish I had the ability to catch more of the steam. Of course converted with Nik Silver Efex tools to black and white.
