Fork on table

I took this odd macro of a fork on brightly colored side table. I set up the fork at an odd angle so that it cast a long shadow and so the detail in the side of the prongs is visible (which is rarely seen). In addition to turning parts of the red table orange and yellow, the strong light also makes a strange shadow which looks more like a wine glass than a fork.
While most macro shots make you look at objects closer, I wanted to present the fork so that it's seen as shape rather than a utensil.

i see a boob, possibly on a bright sunny beach. Oooh maybe it's a comment on the mass consumption of sexuality in a culture driven by the "disposable experience" of modern living. Or maybe it's a fork. Later
