I debated putting a comment in to explain the allusion but I'm glad I didn't because it's more fun seeing the first comment from "Mojo" got it exactly right. When I first glanced at the table, even in person, for an instant I thought the light fixture was sitting on the table. Then I glanced up and saw it on the ceiling. It really was odd how vivid it was. So even thought I hadn't intended to take indoor shots at the mother's day brunch, when I saw that on the way out, after eating, I was glad I had my camera with me.
