The Beauty of Ordinary

As we started this project, I was trying to get out of my mind my own concept of "common." I just kept taking pictures of things in my room and other places, but I think this image has the most universal commonality, so to speak.
What I like most about this image the most is the simplicity and the cooler colors. The almost lack of colors is fascinating to me. There is a definite focal point, being the vertical leaf-like design on the glass. I love the simplicity of this image, with just the glass in the picture and the reflections. Another thing I like about this picture is the use of thirds being the reflection, the 'real vase,' and the negative space.
