1 - a pot or a pan (that big circular thing in the middle of the shot)
2 - something sentimental (what's left of a wallet)
3 - Orton effect (you be the judge)

A wallet isn't the first thing that comes to mind when someone asks you about sentimentalities (that is unless you're an investment banker). Then again, I'm not too much of a sentimental guy when it comes to material things. No, I didn't make it, but it is handmade and I do know the man who designed it. I got it around the tail end of our business relationship, a business relationship that at the time was golden. Everything was golden back then, or at least it seems so now, but then hindsight is always 20/20. The wallet's been through a lot since I first got it. So have I. I got it just before my son was born. He's now 8. I can't recall specific memories during those years very quickly. I usually need a trigger for that to happen. I can remember that during that whole time the wallet never lost me. It still works, although it's worn around the edges with those "everyday grind" scars. I could say the same thing about me. Eventually it's going to fall apart. So will I. Before that happens I'm going to put it some place for safe keeping.
