When you think of still-life do images like these come to mind?  They are examples of a way of thinking about still-life that has been with us since the 16th century.

Would you like to explore a reimagined way of using still-life to tell a story, get inside the core of a subject, and create images with your Smartphone?  Like master painters, learn how to use light, shadow, perspective, shape and contour, space, and composition. 

Recently I led a workshop reimagining still-life as a way of journaling and storytelling.  Tim and Lisa, students in the workshop discovered they could create images on a card table using inexpensive lighting bought at the hardware store.

Reimagining Still-Life Photographs

The moon sits like a silent eye in the sky observing the earth.

Its phases serve as markers of time.

The lunar eclipse reminds us in dramatic and beautiful ways that there are three of us sharing the heavens; the sun, moon, and earth. 

The physical phases of the moon; new, full, waxing, waning, bright, dark, rising, and sitting all serve as visual poetry about life as seen in the cycles of the moon. The reappearance of the moon every night is a reminder about the passage of time and while each day things change there is reassurance in the constancy of the moon.

Full Moon November 19, 2021 also known as the “beaver moon” and “blood moon”. Observed from Sarasota, Florida.

“The Moon is a white strange world, great, white, soft-seeming globe in the night sky, and what she actually communicates to me across space I shall never fully know. But the Moon that pulls the tides, and the Moon that controls the menstrual periods of women, and the Moon that touches the lunatics, she is not the mere dead lump of the astronomist…. When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness.”  D.H. Lawrence, Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D.H. Lawrence. pt.4, 1930

Time and life’s conditions bring about change. This cedar tree with the markings of wind, rain and snow, deep cold and searing sun shows us that beauty and grace remain even though the cedars stately and grand posture has passed.

This mission church is one of the oldest churches in America dedicated to San Francisco de Asis. It is an outstanding example of adobe mission architecture. Constructed between 1813 & 1815. Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico.

The clean lines and earthen materials make it a kindered spirit to modern architecture from the Sarasota School of Architecture. They both integrate the outdoor environment with the architecture using simple materials and clean lines in the design.

Last full moon of 2020

2020 ended with a full moon. It joins the sun in giving us a celestial presence that is reassuring, and god knows we can use some reassurance about now.

Natue is always a reliable source to turn to for orientation. So look up, look around, you might find what you’re looking for.

2021 started as it did the day before and as it will tomorrow, with the sun in the sky bringing light, energy and warmth, The presence of the sun offers us stability, continuity, and certainty. That’s good. I’ll take it.

The use of shape, line, form, light and pattern in architecture can result in the architecture becoming an expression of art.

Golden Wave

I moved down the beach and into the water so I could place this wave in a diagonal composition. I like the way the angle in combination with the contrast in light and the slow shutter speed enhanced the graceful sense of movement in this picture. There’s a softness and strength I find appealing in this image.
