Lens-Artists Challenge #246 Still Life

Patti from Pilot Fish creates this week’s Lens-Artist Challenge. “In this challenge, we’re exploring different types of still life images, not only the traditional “created” arrangement, but also “found” still life scenes–which you might discover in store windows, in a garden or museum, or just about anywhere.”

Benches and their surroundings

Hats in still-life

I saw this display at Placer County Courthouse Museum.
The answer they gave is John F. Kennedy.

Antique kitchen settings

I love to go to farmer’s markets. I admire store-front displays. Sometimes I will arrange the food for a photograph.

Town & Country Village in Sacramento

These are some still-life settings that I created.

As you can tell, I love to use my camera to focus on things around me. Luckily, I use my left eye to focus. The left eye still just has dry macular degeneration. My right eye has wet macular degeneration and all is a swirly blur. Till next time, enjoy these still-life images and let me know which one catches your eye!

  1. I just love your flair for photography Marlene. The smiles put a smile on my face. I loved the food and the colorful candy, but the hats were fantastic. You always have such a nice selection.

  2. What a wonderful collection, Marlene! So creative and diverse. As others have noted…the painted egg and the hats are wonderful. I love the side lighting on the teapot, too. You really have a talent for still life!
