A crane fliyng over a big wave

A nice chawan, a ceramic tea cup for the Tea Ceremony with a crane fliyng over  a big wave  on the sea,  to wish good luck and prosperity. Tha chawan is of pink ceramic, hand made and the irregularity of its shape a desired effect of the artisan who made it, sign of elegance and simplicity, of modesty too. I think in this photo black and white is appropriate to value more the shape, balance and textutre of the nice cup, color is only a distraction and an unnecessary detail. Of course I use shallow focusand back light only to enfatize the shape and texture.
