#stilllifelounge Sunday Showcase
When was the last time you stopped to examine the way the light falls across the floor or how a petal connects to the stem? My guess is, it’s been awhile. When starting the still life lounge, #stilllifelounge Jen (@ikebana_jen) and I took into account the beauty of the mundane. The objects you see everyday but pass over for cityscapes or similar grandiose shots. The lounge is a place where we slow down and take in the details. The small things the force you to take a closer look at everyday objects. Out of our tag has grown a beautiful community of photographers that like to rest in the mundane also. Every week we introduce a new subject and take the time to encourage one another. We do hope you’ll stop by and smell the roses with us soon.
Our subject this week was shadows
This weeks highlight is from Chad Rankin, @sirreal
To float away would be a wonderful way to travel. Like a balloon aloft in the sky or a boat lost at sea. To go on a journey with only your thoughts and imagination to guide you. To float away for only a hour would be a glorious way to spend the day.
This is what I imagined my wife (@mysticmermaid) had on her mind when I captured this shot.
I liked the Surreal Solace she appeared to be in while enjoying a swim. I took the shot and edited it with my iPod. I choose B/W because I didn’t want the color of water to lead the viewer to think she was just floating in water. I wanted it to appear as if she may be levitating out of the water.
