An amazing arrangement and a fine photo. How on earth did you know how to place them so they would balance each other? #1757

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". #2681

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