About this Series, Tuesday, November 20th, 2001
My watch was coincidentially on the black "granite"*) sink that morning. For some reason I was tempted to bend down and have a look at the reflection of the watch. Watch photographers seem to be unconsciously looking for opportunities. To my surprise I found a mirror-like reflection and decided, that I wanted to shot a series of pictures there. I moved all my equipment and here are the shots.

*) Please read Greg Heath's (Heat) post regarding the black granite below the last picture of the series which also shows the structure of the stone best. I was not aware of the exact name of this black stone and Heat's explanation is very sound and scientific.
