Photoessay: Kitchen portholes

I’ve never understood why kitchen windows are always round, but they are. Maybe because square is too much like a hospital or school. Nevertheless, they provide an interesting view into the inner workings of the place where our food comes from. The square format of the D-Lux 5 was perfect for this. MT

    That first one – I thnk that’s the best photo I’ve seen by you.

    The second one looks like a pokémon (LOL) and the 6th is one of my favorites -a composition inside another!
