Rebecca Cummins of Seattle offers photos showing her repeated tracings (in rainbow colors) of the sundialing shadows of assorted glasses and bottles and candle holders atop restaurant tablecloths. She wittily addresses time passed with friends over meals. Bryon Wolfe of Chico, California, spent a year photographing his home and family to create a day-by-day catalogue of little domestic poems — dishes in a sink, a boy sprawled on an airport's moving sidewalk, a rumpled bed, ravens fluttering past a bare tree at dawn. None of this stuff feels particularly substantial, but plenty of it is fetching.
