    An amazing arrangement and a fine photo. How on earth did you know how to place them so they would balance each other?

Thanks Gerda for the comments. It took me about two minutes to stack them on each other. I have about twenty shots - some with just 3 cups and 2 saucers; this one is a bit more daring. I started the stack with a cup (being that seemed more difficult so more interesting) then I stacked to each side from there on up, until they would "fit".

Very nice lighting. It has planted a seed in my brain as I presently doing a series of small black and white photos for a cafe. Hope you dont mind.
Cheers John

Definately puts a new spin on Olive Cotton's "teacup ballet' . Worth every shard of broken china and frayed nerves. I love the image.
