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!
This photo was taken with my iPhone 5S. The tomatoes are from my garden. There is an art to growing things, and then there is something else about making them into a work of art. Both are gratifying. Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge, Week 4: Challenger’s Choice – Still Life.
