Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me...alone-

I'm discontented with homes that I've rented
So I have invented my own.
Darling, this place is lovely oasis
Where life's weary taste is unknown
Far from the crowded city
Where flowers pretty caress the stream
Cozy to hide in, to live side by side in,
Don't let it apart in my dream-

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone NANETTE:
Nobody near us to see us or hear us Mm, mm, mm,
No friends or relations Mm, mm, mm,
On weekend vacations Mm, mm, mm.
We won't have it known, dear,
That we own a telephone, dear...

Day will break and I'll wake
And start to bake a sugar cake
For you to take for all the boys to see

We'll raise a family

A boy for you
And a girl for me

Can't you see how happy we would be...

He dat is leuk gedaan, de theepot is goedschoon, zo dat jullie er same ook scherper op staan. Alleen wat ligt er nu op dat Corneille bordje, ach ik zie het, het theezakje.
Leuke foto, mooie heldere kleuren.

Superb reflections, distortion and colors in this very creative composition, Rob!
I like the way the silver tone and the blue fits so well in this shot, so balanced.
Great gradient as a background.

Wonderfull! The tea pot is full design and give a good oportunity of reflection picture! Great one!

Hi Rob,
Very nice. It looks like the whole world is contained in a teapot. And I guess at times, over tea, it could be.
Good job.

Nice pp work done! Interesting results! Congrats,Rob!

Fantastic work Rob!!! Very creative with great colours and super sharp reflections!!! Excellent work. Congratulations on the artist!!!
Points tomorrow, ok??

très beau graphisme Rob, la scène qui se reflète dans la théière est bien réalisée sans trop de distorsion. Le bleu comme couleur principale est le bien venu dans cette image.
very beautiful graphics Rob, the scene which is reflected in the teapot is well carried out without too much distortion. Blue as principal color is the good come in this image.

The effect of the teapot and its reflection looks like a photo from a fisheye lens. Great Composition.
excellent shot.

Hoi Rob,

Leuk idee om een foto op deze manier te maken, volgens een theepot bij de Blokker weg ;-)
Dit toont wederom jou capaciteit aan van je creativiteit. Ben trots op je!!!!

Humorous picture for me.... rub it and the Genie will come out and give you three wishes. Hahaha.... nice play with texture, and colours. Eye catcher for sure.


Leuk Rob,
Dezelfde theepot als die waar ik mijn roos foto in heb gemaakt. Lekker thee drinken in het zonnetje.

Hi Rob,

A cute idea - but you did such a good job on removing the background I am wondering why you didn't remove yourself in the reflection instead. That would really have made us wonder how it was taken. And somehow the words to the song don't seem to go with what we see reflected in the pot.

Tja, een foto waar ik zelf opsta, kan ik moeilijk niet becommentariëren. Mooie vervorming in de theepot. :-)

Very good idea, Rob. As galmeida says, you created a fish-eye lens with a normal object. I like to see more clarity in the pot. I have made a WS to see better the photographer. The problem is that I can not because he has the camera in front of his face. :). Well, I used the WS also to clean the pot removing some spots. I hope you will like it, so much as I like the background colour you selected which fits perfectly to the handle and the metallica shine of the pot.

What an original idea!!!
Great composition!

Gave gloeiende bol op 2 lullige pootjes; geweldig aanzicht. Ik zou eigenlijk niemand er op willen zien; een mooi krom getrokken hekwerk of zo. Maar; ja, je staat er altijd bij.
Mooi werk; ook in zulke kleine ronde hoekjes zitten mooie platen
Groet Rob

Hi Rob

Wonderful fisheye reflections, in the tea pot. Excellent dof, sharpness, & use of a simple bg. Good work!

what a great photo super well done.
have a nice sunday

The poem is lovely. I just found this great shot on your intro page. It truly is stunning. Very creative self portrait.

A wonderful reflective shot. I really like this one. It is so sharp and clear and the distortion is really neat. What a nicely polished teapot! A great colourful capture. Well done.
Thanks for visiting my photo. Sorry to be so in replying but I've been in Europe for a month.
Cheers Joan

Cute idea, imaginative and well executed.

Good work, good presentation.
