The other view

Sue at WordsVisual recently shared a number of photos featuring light.  Here’s my Six-Word Saturday entry for this week in honor of all the lovely light she photographed.  This is were the early morning sunshine hits the contents of a small table on our second floor and it always commands my attention and appreciation.

The fourth week of the month, Sally allows us to go a little wild and crazy, choosing our theme from a number of choices…maybe even one that’s not included…gasp!  My still life selection comes from Philadelphia’s Rim Cafe’s eclectic mix of decorations.

This still life consists of a still life and painting in our house in Cleveland.  I loved the way the colors of the Chinese lanterns echoes that of both the inner mat and one of the colors in her shawl.  Unfortunately, the contents of the vase did not make the move with us.  The painting, however, did.

Monday’s haven’t been the same since Sally went traveling; good, but not the same.  Welcome back, Sally.  I hope you had a great trip and I’m sure we’ll be seeing photos of wherever you went.

The first Monday of the month means the theme is “Nature” as photographed with any non-traditional camera.  This weekend, after coming home from the farmers market, I was struck by the beauty of nature’s bounty that I’d bought, so that’s what I’m sharing today, at least a portion of it of what I brought home.  When I get home from my mini-road trip (for a baby shower for a friend and time with said friend), I can’t wait to start eating some of this!  I do love when the farmers markets are open again.

“A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on).”  (Wikipedia)

For this fifth Monday, when we use themes from Week 4 to show various editing a/o processing techniques, I’ve chosen a still life.  However, I’m fudging a bit, as my still life is still alive.  My objects are natural (flowers and plants), but I didn’t pick them, only photographed them.  Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy them.  If it makes you feel better, imagine a dead rooster next to it, something that comes to my mind when I think of a still  life.  🙂

I apologize a tiny, tiny bit for all the photos, but I was having way too much fun with this and then I bought 10GB more space (as I was down to less the 1.5% left), so I went just a little crazy. Thanks for bearing with me.  Sally, if you would link me when you see this, I’d appreciate it.  I won’t be around much on Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks in advance.
