I was about to chomp into an apple from the big bowl when I thought, 'How pretty these fruits look, almost like a still life painting'.
So before I eat my models, I thought I'd take a few photographs. I popped out into the garden to collect a couple of red leaves and some Nigella pods.
There were some very bright Nasturtium flowers blooming away so I picked one of those, too. When I got it inside I realised a snail was sleeping in the flower!
I added a couple of my apples and Ta Dah! Instant Still Life!
Of course, when I tried to arrange the Nigella pods all the little seeds dropped out. But I think they look nice scattered on the red Strawberry leaf.
Autumn is the most beautiful time of year. But as lovely as the pumpkins and apples are, they must be eaten!
So get ready Still Life, you are about to get CHOMPED!
*please note - no snails were harmed while photographing the still life. The baby snail was returned to the wild where he resumed his regular activities and sleeping in my Nasturtiums.
