Silent Sunday: From the past

Still life with Jerrycan

Still life with Jerrycan



  1. Worked in B+W, and in colour too. Interesting artifacts, and good composition.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Nice choice of objects Sue and love the muted colours!

  3. great photo! love the inky velvet smooth background with the rough hewn textures of the tools and cans and wood. the neutral palette is zen like, yet… the objects are not. Interesting. loving the bluey grey can next to the pale soft brown wood near complements look very very good together! excellent choice of subject and positioning. cheers, debi

      Thanks, Debi, I had some fun setting this one up….memo to self – must do a shot with the box lid up. Love your comment re: the neutral palette being zen-like, but the objects are not! 😀

  4. Usually I love B&W photographs, but this one is especially so beautiful, I loved it much more. Thank you, love, nia

  5. I like this one, too.


  6. Another glorious still life. Looks as though you have come across totally random bits and pieces, instead of being artfully placed. I love that crate.

    • Sue

      But Jude, it’s my artful randomness….or is it my random artfulness 😳

      • It must be taking you a looong time to pack 😕

      • Sue

        Jude, I still have quite a bit to do, but the removals guys are going to be doing quite a bit of it..,,… And I have friends coming to help next week. It’ll work out!

      • My thoughts entirely for my next move. Let the removal men sort it all out! I will need to do some decluttering though. Have boxes of LPs from the ’70s – ’90s that I never play. Doesn’t make sense to keep them. And I have recently found my eldest kids school reports! Now why on earth do I still have those?

      • Sue

        Who knows? I’ve been de cluttering in slow but steady stages for almost a year!

  7. Wonderful photo and presentation. 😀

  8. Sue I am thinking that your Art includes the setting up of these photos. How long do you spend to create before you begin shooting? So effective and wonderful composition.

  9. You are a talent my dear!

  10. Another great composition and I see those skates have snuck in again…

Over to you...
