Sardine Lunch

Once every few years throughout my adult life I get a craving for sardines with Ry-Krisp for lunch. It just happens. The day I bought these I also bought a can of salmon to make salmon cakes and a can of tuna. Must have been a nutritional need.

When I prepared to eat my sardine lunch (big sardines!) I realized how attractive the plate composition was so I got out the camera. I placed my vintage plate on the back of a Ouija board (masonite) for a neutral and contrasting background and shot it in natural patio light, using the flowers of an orchid as a flag to reduce glare. These three versions were only slightly different in fork placement but I rotated them to look at their layout appearance. What do you think?
