Once in a while, I’ll set up a still life and photograph it. But mostly I shoot what I find while doing something else, like walking the dog, or eating in a restaurant (a good reason to have a camera with you).
My husband and I were eating at a local diner last month, and I asked for extra lemon for my water. They brought it in this:
I really liked the juxtaposition of the yellow with the black-and-white checkerboard, and the light was hitting the lemon slices just right. This was shot with my iPhone.
Then one morning, I put some blueberries in a bowl for breakfast, grabbed a linen dishtowel to wipe the bowl and thought it might look nice as a backdrop. Light was streaming in from the kitchen windows, creating tiny bokeh on the berries….
I added a bit of texture just for fun.
This quote kind of sums it for me….

Great weekend, everyone!
