Excellent Still Life Kath,

That can will last so much longer than a plastic one... archival, I'd say, just like a good print. Great memory, simple composition. When my dad saw grape hyacinths he would proclaim 'Pernicious Weeds' and have 'em out. We have lots now, and Liz likes them. I threaten them, but don't act. Part of my memory of dad.

Now that's a proper watering can, not like these nasty plastic ones! A very lovely arrangement and capture, Kath, brings back memories of when I were a lad, especially presenting it in mono. The wonderful dappled light helps give a feeling of summer too and makes it a winner 👍😃

I bet that watering can may tell loads of tales Kath, good to leave it where you may admire. Nicely photographed in this dappled light setting

Back for another look. The subtleness of the light and the shadows captivates. Such a simple scene, basically, but made special by that light.

Thank you all so much for taking time to comment and view. Yes Malc, Angela Leo and Kaxxie, it is all about the light and shadow and I had been fettling with the items included and just put them them down and then saw the light. I did a slight rearrangement, well not really! Used the little Panasonic too, rapidly becoming my weapon of choice!

Lovely Dave, Trev and Tony and others, yes a lot of memories in that degging can of the man who gave me a love of nature, gardening and people. Thanks you again and I will message you for the awards.

Take care.


Just typing a response and crossed over with you Malc. Thank you so much, it means a lot.

There's a lovely, terraced orderliness to this picture: I suspect that's something your Dad would value (and probably taught you...)
Love the light and shadows captured Kat.
Lovely reminder of your Dad..

Excellent play of light and shadow.
