Still Life with Wine box etc

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!:

Squeezing the most into a Still Life frame

I enjoyed creating these, but rarely do now, as I am less nimble.

  1. Great photos that really hit the brief

  2. Great shots. And I am suitably jealous of a whole box of Margeaux. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I do like that first one. Beware Dr B, he bites!

  4. Oh Sue, I really like both of these photos. 😀 😀 Well done!!!

  5. Fantastic. You’re talented 👏

  6. Very, very nice! You nailed this challenge! Cady

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    • Sue

      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 👍🍷

      • Sue

        Ah, I do like both, but I’m usually a little more prosaic these days!

  9. Nice shot, Sue. Welcome to Still Life World! 🙂

  10. 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.

    Great images that sit well together. I, too, envy the Margeaux!

  12. 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. 🙂

  13. Two very different compositions :
    I love the light in the first,
    and the shape & textures in the 2nd image is fabulous.
