This week Patti challenges us with Still Life. Yikes! Fortunately she gave us a broad description of what she wanted us to post. “You can photograph just about anything: flowers, silverware, a variety of products (think of advertising), fruit, kitchen utensils, tools, and objects around your office or home,” she says.

Since this is my second attempt at posting my response, I’ll be brief. Three types of still lifes I enjoy photographing are flowers, buildings and sculptures.

McKinley Rose Garden in Sacramento.

Buildings in Melbourne, Australia.

Thompson Building Supplies and Nursery.

Thank you Patti for giving us a broad definition for still life images. In my first attempt at this post I was more eloquent, but frustration kicked in when WordPress wouldn’t let me post it. Let’s cross our fingers for this one. When you post your reply, please remember to tag Patti’s original post and use the Lens-Artists tag.

I enjoyed seeing and reading about your environments last week as you responded to Tina’s challenge. Next week Ann-Christine will be leading the challenge. Be sure to look for her post.

  1. So sad to hear about your WP issues Anne, I know exactly how frustrating that can be! Terrific images – enjoyed them all but the rose with the bud is amazing and I loved your closing eagle.

  2. Such a shame you had those issues posting this – I’m glad you persevered! I always write in Word first and copy and paste it into the blog. That way if anything goes wrong I still have my original text πŸ™‚ I learned the hard way when using Virtual Tourist many years ago as that frequently crashed in its early days in particular.

  3. Ah yes. WordPress loves its own challenges.

    The abstract building in Melbourne that says Melbourne Now, is a piece of art in itself. I loved the sculptures from the nursery, and the smiling Buddha is a fun add.


  4. I’m glad you managed to post, Anne. Frustrating, indeed.
    I love you organised the galleries in such way, they highlight how wonderful all the photos are. I think my favourite would be the buildings one, but it’s a very close call between them all.
