On my last month’s foray to WalMart, my cousin presented me with a small sack of fruit, “just because”, as she said, consisting of apples and a few pears. After dodging around them in my kitchen for a few days, I bethought me of the still life possibilities, so I opened the sack and took them out (they were a touch past their prime), arranging them, ex tempore, as it were, on the top of a shallow cabinet that my wife likes to line up photos on, leaning them against the wall. I took a few frames … this one’s the best.
There are some little figurines that I elected to leave more-or-less in place, figuring they made a nice addition to the composition; a touch of variety, so to speak. They’re odd little things, stamped “made in occupied Japan”, and I understand they are considered valuable. Any road, they seem to add a bit of something to the picture … I’m glad I left ’em in.
Anyway, here it is … a nice departure from my usual subjects … enjoy!
