You Capture - Still Life

Thursday, October 15

This weeks photo challenge was still life and I'll have to admit I was definitely lacking inspiration. Maybe I should have sculpted and photographed a huge pile of dirty laundry - that's about the only still life I've been noticing around here. Sorry, I know you didn't come here to hear about that stuff!

I should really know what these are, but if my kids asked I would tell them it was a seed pod. That is my answer for anything that falls out of a tree that is not a leaf or a blossom. Anyway, someone (not me or mine) took the time to line these nut things along the groove on a picnic table. Thank you someone.
For a week we had some beautiful flowers in our dining room and they used to look like this, but not so blurry.
By the time I got around to the subject of still life they looked more like this. Is there still any life? or still life?
Here is me playing with the composition.

OK, let's go visit the other Still Life photos.

Those are BUCKEYES! Love that idea...I'll have to share this one with my hubby. We are HUGE Ohio State fans!

Great shots!

Those are chestnuts.

I love the nuts lined up-something my boys would totally do!

And the last shot is beautifully composed, and the flower is still quite pretty, despite it wilting!

Horse chesnuts! We had a tree in our backyard growing up.

Your photos are so unique; love 'em.

I missed your You Capture - Red last week, but oh my heck! Just exceptional. :)
