Arsenal (Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge)

Arsenal
Discovered while walking my dog.

Taken with my iPhone 5S. Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge, Week 4: Challenger’s Choice, Still Life.

I put a lot of thought into my Photography Challenge posts, often regarding the photo itself. Is it the best shot of the ones I took? What about the subject matter? …the lighting? This week it was all about the category.

I was struggling with whether I would categorize it as “Objects” or “Still Life.” I chose “Still Life” because “Objects” somehow didn’t seem enough. There is action and life in this scene. We simply isn’t visible.

I thought about the exuberance with which somebody created these snowballs. I wondered if it was a boy. How old was he? Did he lob any of these before being called in for lunch? Maybe he was a teen, mischievously storing them for an impending ambush.

I will never know. I can only imagine. A picture certainly can be worth a thousand words.

This shot wasn’t as clear, as it was shot while on a hay ride, but I liked the subject matter.

My son and I enjoyed a “caramel apple” (sliced Granny Smith apple, vanilla ice cream, nuts, and warm caramel) just before we left. I like the table and pumpkin framing this shot. The taste of the caramel apple was even better!
