Soft curves

I know I recently posted another fork shot but I posted this one because I thought it was unique and different from the first. I'm always happy when an image of simple, everyday things seems to be more than the sum of its parts.
In this photo a simply designed fork and spoon (Ikea of course) looks more like human figures or the flowing lines of a sports car. I used black and white to focus the eye on the form and shapes rather than the color of the items.
To me photography is all about the details.

Really nice. The contrast is perfect and I love how the curves of the fork and spoon just fit together. Ikea rocks!

I might blow this up and keep it in my kitchen, once I get out of these dorms that is...
