Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot: Still Life


























Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot: Take a snap of something in a "still life" mode. It doesn't have to be a bowl of fruit, mind you (although there's nothing wrong with a bowl of fruit, if that's your thing). But something that you can get contemplative about would be nice. Also, it doesn't move, unless you go and pick it up. If you want to play, click on the link.

OK, here's mine: this is a bottle of iced lemon water, a/k/a tap water, Lajitas style, that was served to Mike and me one blazingly hot afternoon last August at the Candelilla Cafe in the resort town of Lajitas, Texas (near Big Bend National Park) when we stopped there for lunch. This definitely didn't move unless we picked it up, and when you're traveling through the desert in Texas, it's easy to get contemplative about a bottle of ice cold water.

Neat! I sometimes get the best pictures when I'm just fooling around with the camera...

It's good to see you doing more on your blob, I really enjoy seeing whats going on with you and your thoughts. The ice water is a great picture for anyone in the south, considering that it's in the 80's with high humidity here on the coast.

Wow! Bubber! I never expected you to comment, but I'm glad you did! Thank you. :) Let's talk this week. When you come visit in September, bring your suit. The pool is very inviting.
