More Beans

By chase
So which weighs more, a pound of jellybeans or a pound of feathers ?....the feathers win Wink

Different scales to the last one, I think these scales would have been used to weigh out stuff in a shop so the contents could be poured out into a nice paper bag Wink

A 3 frame HDR image lit by daylight camera left. Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
Why the feathers ? I hear you cry, well, they were in my cupboard doing nothing, thought the concept was a bit different Wink

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Aha 🙂 the departed squirrel is now replaced by a departed bird plus feathers, Janet, 🙂 full marks for a really creative image. Love the colourful sweets, perhaps best used like this as ornaments and not eaten! Nice stoneware kilner jar lid too. A very different and colourful image.

Reminds me of Ancient Egyptian illustrations of the weighing of the soul. The jellybeans are clearly innocent.

You'll be filling pillows and selling them next! Using the feathers, not the jelly beans, in case you were in doubt!Wink

A bit of the surreal with the feathers Janet, and the beans look like they're about to be tipped into the feathers! Another imaginative still-life.
I remember scales like this when I were a lad, for poring flour, sugar (and beans!) into a paper bag, or even potatoes and onions directly into the shopping bag.

Looking up the image this conjured... Anubis weighed the hearts of men against a feather in Egyptian mythology.Those of a religious turn of mind may see the idea of a feather being heavier than a heart as an indication of the mercy of God, or the gods...

Well, what else would you expect to find in a cupboard but feathers?!! 😁 What a great idea, Janet 👍 I think you're right about them being shop scales as you say, the shape of the bowl to enabled easy pouring of the contents into a paper bag 😃
