Portraits of the dishes after they’ve been washed

Even the mundane task of washing dishes by hand is an example of the small tasks and personal activities that once filled people’s daily lives with a sense of achievement.

If you’re a dish washer, like I am, Burrhus isn’t telling you anything you don’t know already. If you aren’t then you probably think I’m talking about sticking the dishes inside one of those infernal contraptions and pressing a button. No, that’s not, by any stretch of the imagination, washing the dishes. I’m talking about the kind of dish washing where you painstakingly scrub, conscientiously wipe, and even, when needed, gently massage each and every dish by hand until not only is it sanitary for personal use it is also dazzling to the eye. And then, and only when, upon assuring that each dish is free of stain and all cutlery, as well as glasses and mugs are without spot, you allow the dishes to air dry for 3 to 5 hours just as God intended. How do I know this you may ask. Well, not only have I worked professionally as a dish washer, but I have also (at great, but well worth it, personal expense) had my Private Residence fitted with a restaurant grade sink for the purpose of keeping my skills sharp should I ever (God forbid) need to return to the work force.

The images that follow are a documentation of the dishes washed by me by hand over a 14 day period spanning from the 9th of June to the 22nd of June 2015. Please, feel free to admire my work.
