STILL LIFE............. some with PINKS

Hi, Everyone.

This month's challenge at DONNA'S
PERSONAL PHOTO CHALLENGE
 is
STILL LIFE.

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).
***
Donna has asked us to photograph 4 or 5 still lifes
and I don't have a clue how to do it the right way. 
I am sure there are rules for photographing still life....

I have just gone back in time and chose photos that appealed to me.
I hope they qualify as STILL LIVES.
***






This is an awesome monthly link party and I know YOU will have fun
with it, too.
Thanks so much for hosting, Donna.

also joining PINK SAT. 
and 
thanks to Beverly for hosting one of the longest running link parties in Blogland.

  20. I see what you mean on your other blog about the word "merge" when I saw you were following I clicked to see who this was and went to a strange place. I found you though. Thanks.

  23. You instinctively do still life photography for the vast majority of your blog pictures, so I knew you would have no trouble with this assignment. There is one thing that you excel at too - adding layers of items to provide visual interest. Like the pretty ribbon and greenery in the background of the first setup. And the pot of parsley behind the container filled with cookies. You know how to stage a shot! Well done, sweetie. This assignment was a piece of cake for you (with a cherry on top)!

  28. I'm so glad you didn't include 'dead animals' bj - much rather look at your lovely shots of pretty things.
    Good picks - you really nailed them in such a tasty way!

    Hugs - Mary
