day 155: understated

This fabulous shop window I saw a few days ago on the way to buy an envelope and a big paperclip. I only needed one envelope and one paperclip, but now I have 9 envelopes and 39 paperclips left. Well, I guess I’m set now, in case I have to apply for other stuff too. This shop was the lamp equivalent of the 40 paperclips when you only need one. If you need only a lamp that gives you some light one of these ones would be way over the top.

It took me a while to get the colours on this one right, since having lots of yellows in artificial light can look quite desaturated after adjusting the white balance. I also managed to reduce the flare from the window a bit, which somehow turned out blue and was really distracting.
