Bookish

I have been a collector of old school books most of my adult life- nothing valuable. When I was home raising kids and wasn’t teaching at that point, I bought old primers and readers at garage sales. Later, when I went back to teaching, I collected old readers that were being discarded and replaced by newer series. So I still have quite a few.  I still love them and decided to photograph a stack today. After shooting several different arrangements, I stacked them the way that we teachers told kids NEVER to stack books! Maybe I am becoming a rule breaker in my old age!


Still and more still

I have a few more images to share from my still life marathon in the bathroom studio.  Each photo is edited with Kim Klassen’s textures, different ones on each photo.

Negative

My friend and fellow photographer, Carol (infocusdaily.com), and I have been talking about the use of negative space in our images.  In looking through some still-life photos I took Saturday, I found one that definitely has negative space- more than I usually use in my photos. This was taken in my current home studio- the hall bathroom- that’s a shower curtain in the background!
