Early Autumn Still Life
It has been a while since I shot a true still life. Autumn with its lively red and yellow colour shades is irresistible for me, just like for most photographers. I love rose-hip at this time of year and the fact that it is so easily accessible for me growing in the car park outside my house makes it a must to use in a still life. Its spindly wild look calls for a wide top receptacle to present it in an interesting way and this time I thought of the old small copper coal scuttle I picked up for a pound at a car boot sale. The white enamel jug with dried lavender in it that sits on a tiny wooden table in the corner of my dining room came as an exciting addition. And a couple of red apples and a few supermarket bought physalis rounded up the the early autumn theme.
