I was inspired by Mathai‘s photograph of corn to look for something to capture inside the home. I couldn’t believe that I managed to leave these alone for so long.
Since the beginning of my working life, I collected match boxes from restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels. Whenever I remembered, wherever I happened to be, I asked for one and placed it in my pocket. I still don’t know why I started this – but on this rainy Friday evening – I’m so glad I did.
The children saw me take them out of the spaghetti jars. Now that they know what they are, I’m worried they would play with them, so I removed every single matchstick from all the boxes. What you see here is less than half!
Hers is what I will do for fun. The next post will be photographs of the boxes of all the restaurant, cafes etc; and the following one will be of hotels. I will put the names of all the places, including the city and country.
