a journey in still life

Still life was a harried and crazy adventure when I first began. The very words 'still life' made it sound to me like it would be something calming and peaceful. The latter didn't come close to describing how I felt when this journey began.

But, like with everything in life, changes happen. We grow and we learn. Journey's don't always start out on the right foot. They can take getting some getting use to.

But I persevered and pressed on in the struggles and craziness that seemed to happen when I attempted putting together a still life.

Now when I walk back to my little studio space, it's a sanctuary. It's a disaster most of the time, but it truly is a peaceful spot for me.

Surrounded by my props and the bright light coming in through the south-facing window I can work for a long while gathering various pieces and creating.

Still life photography has provided for me a stillness in life that I've needed these past three years or so. I thankful for the process and for the skills God has developed in me.

Always
