Anybody have a little Tarn-X?

One of the undeniable facts about silver is, it’s going to need polishing.  The enduring beauty of the silversmith’s work will undoubtedly tarnish over time but somehow, that does not make it less interesting.  These silver serving pieces stand atop a dresser as if they are just waiting for the kitchen staff to start their polishing routine.  While the surfaces still shine and reflect, the tarnish patterns add their own mark as an overlay to the detail that was part of the original design.

Sometimes the imperfections caused by age make things distinguished and sometimes they are just dirty.  Which one you think it is, would be a matter of your opinion and outlook.  I like to think it adds character but then again, I don’t like to polish silver.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
