My Photo Sunday...

Photalife


I was meant to be shooting some portraits today but my model had to reschedule, so as I was at a loose end I decided to shoot some still life images. I'm still fascinated by the concept of wabi sabi so decided to incorporate the roses from last weeks shoot in the garden, which were on their last legs to say the least. As Leonard Koren puts it: "Wabi sabi is the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete, the antithesis of our classical Western notion of beauty as something perfect, enduring, and monumental".



Speaking of impermanence - Ralph was given a collar with a bell yesterday morning because he brought a female blackbird into the house (unhurt) and let it go in the living room before he then disappeared upstairs to bed. Perhaps he thought it wanted its photo taking?!? The collar lasted less than twelve hours before it was found, sans Ralph, in the garden. He's incorrigible...cute, but incorrigible.

Aren't they all. Our Tina ( years back ) brought in a mouse and presented it to my guests during dinner under the dining room table. Beautiful photos today. Deb

That first photograph is stunning - it should be printed and framed. Wonderful!

Ralph!

Well, at least it wasn't hurt. Probably scared out of its mind!

A beautiful still life - like an old master painting.

The first photo for me is sad, moody and dramatic. Love it! #mysundayphoto
