Lens Artist’s Photo Challenge #246: Still life

This week Patti has us looking at Still Life.

Here goes for a couple of Found Still Lifes.

First up, a National Trust kitchen scene:

Now a found Still Life with chair and hat:

Still Life with old sewing machine that I kept for that purpose:

Squeezing the most into a Still Life frame

….and again

And now for a kitchen Still Life, minimalist:


Here’s one I threw together, aiming for light and shadows:

In the gloom

Now for a jumble of old items:

And here’s a post breakfast Still Life:

Well, hope you enjoyed these!

  1. I love your still life photos.

  2. Great selection, Sue. I still remember that lovely chair and hat photo.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Wow. OutSTANDING selections. Very well done.

  4. Love the singer sewing machine and black and white letters. Terrific photos Sue 😀

  5. Love these! Especially the scene with chair and hat as well as the Singer sewing machine. Reminds me of my grandmother 💜

  6. PR

    Very artistic Sue 🙂

  7. The Singer gets my vote. But all were great.

  8. This was a challenge with your name writ large. You have hosts of great images.

  9. You’re really good at still lives, Sue. Especially love the first two.

  10. The gloom and the jumble are very painterly – my favourites.

  11. Wow Sue – you definitely have mastered the still life, both in terms of technique and subject matter. Superb. I loved them all but your “thrown together” image and the 2 that follow it are my favorites of this wonderful set.

      Many thanks, Tina….I would never have thought I could ‘do’ Still Life, but one day I thought I would give it a go, and realised I had a knack…

  12. A very eclectic series – I love how different each one is in vibe & composition, each a study of hone still life can reveal so much.

    The B&W of the sewing machine resonates with me.

  13. Ever so good Sue. I was waiting for one of your old ones with the book wine glass and glasses

  14. Sue

    Pleased you like the variety of these, Ju-Lyn. As for the sewing machine, I’m glad I kept it!

  15. Sue

    Many thanks, Patti! LightiNg composition and mood is what. It’sa

  16. You have a real knack for spotting, arranging and photographing these! I especially love your ‘jumble of old items’ 🙂

  17. Beautiful still life set, Sue. You have a real talent for it! I’m so glad you included some original still life shots. They are so well done. I especially love the last three images. The “jumble of items” and “post breakfast” are beautifully lit.

  18. What a fantastic collection, Sue. You have both the eye and the know how to compose great still life images. I loved theNational Trust kitchen scene, the sewing machine and the written letter. Very nice post

  19. In the gloom and the letters really appeal to me Sue!

  20. I knew this one was made for you, Sue! Brilliant you are in still life – too! I LOVE all your moody ones especially – the thrown together and the old items and…the chair and hat is deliciously captured. Thank you for the delight of the day!
