Paper cup

This discarded cup was in a storefront window of a gutted shop. I took the shot as a visual pun on display of a store's merchandise, but I kind of like how the shapes work together. It has obviously been there a while.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/13 second F/9.0 ISO 200 112 mm (35mm equiv.)

Interesting how everything appears coated in a monochromatic dust, which really antiquates this composition!! Excellent find!
