COLORFUL did light the imaginations of several people. Here are this week’s submissions:
Christopher D. Bennett
Dawn Krause of Impassioned Versifier
Julie Johnson of The Joy is in the Journey
Justin Whitaker of American Buddhist Perspective
Mike Vest of Waxen Media
Brighter thoughts fill the mind
Happiness feels sublime
Heartstrings begin to bind
Pink of admiration
Journey to destination
Passion red fills the soul
Overflowing empty hole
Giving back what it stole
Yellow hope of sunshine
Making clouds worth our time
Every sunset feels fine
Blue of clear brighter sky
Natural love flying high
Take a deep breathe and sigh
Whispers of contentment
Dancing with enthrallment
World becoming rainbow
Sets complexion aglow
As warmth and feeling flow
The Random Generator has been primed, fired up and it has spit out this week’s theme:
Now those of you that are observant will note that in the Photography 139 Artistic Gallery there is a Still Life Album. The truth is that by the strictest definition of the term, most of the stuff in there isn’t really STILL LIFE. It is mostly just stuff that is leftover that doesn’t belong in the albums: Flora, Fauna or Sapiens.
A good definition of STILL LIFE photography comes from Wikipedia:
Still life photography is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.
I admit that last sentence sounds like it was written by a still life photographer, but you get the point.
Here are a few examples that fit the basic mold:
Of course, no reason to be too literal with the theme.
In an unrelated final note, there was some curiosity about the gargoyles in the Journal Entry Slice of Life Vol. 2. I have done a little bit of research into that house and I have posted that information in the Comments section of that journal entry:
Slice of Life Vol. 2
Good luck with STILL LIFE and I look forward to seeing the submissions!
