Texture Tuesday on Wednesday

Since my last post, I am thinking humor. I have been working on my belly laughs and now I have my husband engaging as well. I will keep you posted. Like clock work the days fly by..  Time for Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen’s beautiful site. We have some pretty, summer action, going on in our small back yard. Kim’s work gives me the incentive to keep trying..

Downloads128It’s Tuesday and time for Texture Tuesday. I am also using this for the Be Still 52 course. I started with my make shift photo studio. A large cardboard box and threw some burlap over it. For Be Still, this week, the highlight of our lesson was about  sidelight. Kim suggested that we set up near a window. I purchased a small table a few days ago. I will be able to move it easily and follow the light in our home. I don’t have a lot of options, so I am  working  with what I have. Well, we have windows but some provide better lighting than others.

FebruI came across five of these ornate little hand stitched squares. I found them at a thrift store, as I rummaged through the linen. I think they are fascinating.

DSCN3404I’d like to know the history behind them, who actually did the work, and how are they to be used. They are so pretty, I’d like to display them in some way.. I am linking to Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.

2015-02-009

I am participating in a year-long online course on Still Life,  that Kim Klassen is host to. It is taking me out of my comfort zone in some ways as I have to stop and think about what I am photographing. I tend to gravitate towards anything vintage, so there was a reason for me to hang onto old stuff that I have carried around for years. Kim suggests that we be the patient with ourselves and to work towards mastering calmness into our day. Well those are my words but it is what she is implying in Be Still 52. The link to Texture Tuesday is here.
