Patti is our host this week – Still Life
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
– Dorothea Lange
Found in a rented apartment in Denmark.
Found at a design exhibition in Sweden.
Found in a restaurant in Stettin.
Once created by me.
Glass artistery at Kosta Boda, Sweden.
Glass art in Prague – local artist.
Sweden – a ”real” Still Life!
A market somewhere in Europe.
An old house in the middle of Sweden.
Found in Spain, Bilbao.
We invite you to join us this week for the Still Life challenge. Feel free to include “created” and “found” still life scenes–which you might find in your archives or create for this challenge. Be sure to include the “lens-artists” tag and link to Patti’s post. We’re looking forward to seeing your diverse and imaginative responses.
A special thanks to Tina for hosting last week’s Environments challenge and we greatly enjoyed seeing your preferences and your thoughts on how our environments shape us and our experiences.
Next week, it will be me, Ann-Christine (at Leya), hosting, so be sure to stop by at my place, next Saturday at noon EST. In the meantime, I’m hoping that you still are kind, and filled with generous love.

Love the market click of vegetables and the first image where the guys are relaxing on a sofa.

True masterpieces, AC. I love the truth in Lange’s quote. I love your varied look at the challenge. The vases fromPrague were interesting and I love the bunnies from the first photo. But I have to agree with a few others, the book with the pen and the shoes were favorites. A great post. I look forward to your challenge next week.
Thank you, Donna-for always being positive and a treat with comments – too. You truly have a way with words. I hope you will not be disappointed with the challenge.
Already looking forward to it.
Your still life captures are no less than art, Ann-Christine. They make you wonder at all the beauty we are surrounded with, if only we take the trouble to really see.
I am glad you liked them! Thank you for a lovely comment!
Love the treaures you found: the restaurant, the house in Sweden, the glass art, all beautifully captured, Ann-Christine.
Thank you, Sofia! Loved your take on!
I love the books still life, but they all do certainly meet the challenge, Ann-Christine!
Thanks, John! I should practice more…
My favorite is yours!! 🙂
I love them all, especially your still life set up. Too many other wows 🙂
Oh what gorgeous fun! Love it all but smile most at the flopsy mopsies (rabbits) and love the glass art . . . thank you 🙂 !
Ann-Christine, you really do master every challenge thrown your way! These are marvelous. I loved the fancy shoes and the 2 images that immediately follow it especially but all are perfect for the challenge.
Thank you, Tina, for a lovely comment! I’d love to be able to wear those shoes..
Great still life presentations Ann-Christine. I have many favorites, especially your ”real still life. But all are photographed so well.
Thank you, Anne! Wish I had painted that one myself . …
Great examples spanning the range of still life possibilities.
Fabulous! I didn’t know what was coming next, and loved all of them, Ann-Christine.
You are always too kind, Jo!
Especially love the long-legged hares/rabbits and the glass art from Prague
Thank you! The glass art there was really something!
Fabulous set, AC. Just wonderful! They are all gorgeous!
Thank you, Patti!
Great found Still Lifes….LOVE the Stettin restaurant! And the Swedish Still Life of plums-yours?
Wish it was…they look so real, those plums!
They most certainly do!
What a varied and beautiful collection Ann-Christine! Your own arrangement is awesome 😀
Lovely ‘found’ still lives. You’ve done well. I shall find this a challenge and a half!
These are all great! Love those colorful shoes. I couldn’t wear them but they sure are pretty. I also really liked the colorful sculpture in Bilbao.
I am glad you liked those – in fact those shoes really are in a favourite photo!
You took us to some wonderful places this week. Excellent still life photos 😀
Ah, thank you, Cee!
