Still Life


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used to paint a lot and my favourite subject was Still Life, so I accumulated a lot of pots, vases, china and objects that I picked up from charity shops to use to that end. When I downsized three years ago I had to get rid of most, but kept my favourites.Now I find that I’m enjoying setting them out to photograph and trying out different lighting and effects. This is especially useful as I find it difficult to get out and about as much as I would like to and the garden hasn’t much inspiration to offer at the moment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI hope to be posting more frequently in future – but then, I know I’ve said that before … well, I’m full of good intentions ain’t I?      Eileen
