Light was good in my, very narrow, side hall this morning and I spotted the Garlic in my fridge, just before adding some to my SpagBol.
Out came the ironing board, a couple of pieces of an old staircase and my Garlic shaped tea light holder.
I had to open the garage door (opposite my set up) and take the images from inside, the door did stop some light, so came in useful.

Lit by daylight camera right.
An HDR image, 3 frames each 1 stop apart.
Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a texture and the usual faffing Wink

The wall BTW is so not straight, as I found out when post processing !!! oh well.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay safe everyone, I'm off to do a little bit of metal detecting in my paddock...all alone with the sunshine, oh, and the pooch Wink

The 'horizon' is level! The wall's definitely a bit wonky...but it's the subject we're looking at not wonky walls! A super presentation, Janet 👍
Take care and stay well,
Trev 😀

Many of us would kill for that garlic holder - your clump tied with twine is so well placed
and artistically arranged - you make us all up our game.
Another Epz member said he'd just discovered your work whilst doing his week as GE - he was inspired an dis now following you.

I want a hanging garden chair designed on that tealight holder!
I like the placement of the objects here, Janet, different and very effective.
