Yesterday I was moaning in general that I had lost my "edge" in photography and have become addicted to shooting "pretty". So on a wild hair (after I saw the golden afternoon light as I was leaving the office), I decided to try and create a bit of edge.


Now, I shot 50-60 images of this chair and pepper from different angles and different appetures. For some reason, this one is my favorite. Technically - I probably should have stopped down a bit more, getting all of the chair into focus...but, for some reason, I like that the back of it is not quite in focus. To me, it adds to the surreal scene. I mean, how often do you drive past a meadow and see a red pepper sitting on a chair. Right - so, right away the composition should say somewhat surreal. Unfortunately, I may be the only person that thinks this.

Oops! Left the ISO too high and created grain. But...I love blue doors for some reason. I liked the rusty trails and the orange leaves at the bottom.


And the pepper again just because it was such a perfect pepper. And it tasted very yummy with lunch today. I am sitting here looking at the bit left and thinking I should get my camera.


  1. That chair is awesome! I love the vintage paint!

  2. The blue door looks like the rust is leaking out onto the ground, or the leaves are climbing up the door?

    The chair is MAGNIFICENT. I love it too, so you are not alone :o)


i feel as if each comment was between us as we sat and sipped something warm....i love to hear what you're thinking.
