Springtime

I know there's only a month or so of spring remaining in the southern hemisphere, so I'm a tad late with my springtime theme, but better late than never. Enjoy the blue skies, sun, nature and fresh air today and if you don't have that right now.....take the weather with you!

Still Life

It's been a while since I made a still life, so I thoroughly enjoyed creating this image this week. There is something about the process of creating a still life that allows you to slow down and concentrate on crafting the story and the light. Simplifying is something I practice in everyday life and like to use that element in my photography as much as possible. Also, removing the distraction of colour, often creates a mood, emotion and story that is much more powerful.
