Light + Camera = Play Time

There was only one thing I obligated myself to do yesterday. It was the dreaded cleaning of the bathroom. I procrastinated as long as I could but eventually tackled the job. Other than that I filled my day with fun and all from the comfort and warmth of home.
One of my play time activities involved my camera. I have a table in the corner of my dining room with a lantern made of wood and a mason jar. It was getting dark out and I turned the light on and set different things next to it and snapped away.

I've added textures to the first two pictures because I can and because I like them. The first one is with a vase of silk roses.


Antique tea cup


cheap dollar store birds


and my trustee assistant. I was under his watchful eye the entire day.

  1. Oh my gosh, these are beautiful!! I have just been watching a documentary about the wonderful photographer Annie Lebovitz, and I want her book, too. These remind me of her photos. The light, the textures, beautiful.
