One day, I found this picture on my mobile phone. The photo I don’t remember taking. When I took a closer look, I noticed, “Oh! This is a picture of the kitchen shelf taken from below.” I’m sure that when I turned off the power in a hurry, I shot at the same time. Normally, I immediately delete all the photos that I took by mistake. This one has some taste, and it’s a composition that I never choose, and on the contrary, it’s looks artistic! Then, this photo became one of my favorites early in the new year. At the same time, I wish I could make this year a year of new discoveries.
