Dr B at Buddha Walks into a Wine Bar has us taking Still Life’s this week for Challenge your Camera (but I think we are really challenging our imagination)…so here’s one I threw together a while ago, using old stuff that I kept for such things:
and here’s a monochrome, same bellows camera, different background!:
I enjoyed creating these, but rarely do now, as I am less nimble.

Great photos that really hit the brief
Great shots. And I am suitably jealous of a whole box of Margeaux. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
That was a while ago…..
I do like that first one. Beware Dr B, he bites!
You be bitten??
Oh Sue, I really like both of these photos. 😀 😀 Well done!!!
Fantastic. You’re talented 👏
Very, very nice! You nailed this challenge! Cady
I love the first one. It’s all down to having a knack of arranging objects that work together with contrasting shapes / textures that you can certainly do well.
Two good photos, great examples for others to learn from too. I like the first one, something with wine in it always appeals! Chateau d’Angludet was the first Bordeaux I ever tasted as a student, rather a long time ago! Nowadays the d’ is dropped and it’s just Chateau Angludet, but a bargain undervalued claret. Thanks for posting.
Many thanks! Ch d’Angludet was one of the first Bordeaux I first tasted 30 years or so ago…and I still enjoy it.
My first taste was almost 50 years ago, recently I bought a load of half bottles from The Wine Society at around £13. Nowadays I mostly go for Burgundies though 👍🍷
Ah, I do like both, but I’m usually a little more prosaic these days!
Nice shot, Sue. Welcome to Still Life World! 🙂
Oh, I have done quite a few Still Lifes over the years, Cho!
Oh, great! Love to see more. 🙂
Search for Cup of Coffee and a Book on my site!
Wine, Sue? You’ll have noticed I’m paying attention 🙂 🙂 You do have a knack for these! You’re as nimble as you need to be.
Yes, but these aren’t recent, I must test my abilities now,….
Great images that sit well together. I, too, envy the Margeaux!
I really like both of these a lot, Sue, especially the first one. As I’ve said before, much more interesting and attractive than those with fruit and a dead rooster. 🙂
Two very different compositions :
I love the light in the first,
and the shape & textures in the 2nd image is fabulous.
Thanks, Ju-Lyn….yes, the light in he first worked well
