Foto Friday- Still Life

This week's Foto Friday was Still Life. I missed last week due to some old habits being broken and new habits started but I'm back this week-did you miss me? Probably not, but hey it's okay:)

To me a still life portrays a collection of items that have some sort of significance or tell a story. Typically still lives aren't composed of live critters, but my cat Moocha was staring out the window on the couch so calm, still, and peaceful I grabbed a shot because he was a still life-literally! :) I actually have still life material quite a bit around my house. I tend to group things in collections to be displayed throughout the home. One of my favorites, which portrays Mother's Day so well is my grouping of willow tree sculptures. I pulled out the ones specifically with mother and children. I thought it a perfect grouping to show the love of a mother to a child. The floral arrangement on the piano was a gift from my hubby. They had a banquet at work and he snagged one of the leftover arrangements for me, which btw is GORGEOUS..It looked so beautiful sitting on the piano and I can look at it often. I picked arrangements of items and things that I love. To be surrounded by things that warm your heart is a wonderful thing, so I truly enjoyed capturing them in still life form this week! :)

I hope you have a blessed Mother's Day and if you'd like to participate along with us, visit
