Wild Animals I have Known....

By chase
....Is the title of the book, published in 1898.... and yes, I do wear the hat ( it's not real fur btw ), the ear flaps keep out the wind and stop my hair blowing across my face Wink

The camera is on loan, I liked the leather strap and thought it went with the colours here.

Single frame, lit by daylight camera left.
Nothing added here, the bg is my backdrop.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive comments and mods welcome.
Stay safe everyone.

Reminds me of Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals...
Leather and (faux) fur seem to be snuggling up to each other.

A fine-looking old camera, from when you had to know your f stops from your shutter speeds, and what knobs and buttons you had to fiddle with! 😁 Love your presentation, Janet 😃👍

Love the old books Janet, do you ever read then? And I'm sure my father had a camera like that one, many years ago, which was responsible for many a post holiday slideshow!
Beautifully composed and captured still life Janet, love the tones and the subject.

I'm investing in some simple lighting so i can have a go at still life. I'll be studying your work to get (steal) some ideas. Wink You put together such interesting items but I don't think I'll have the space for more stuff myself.

Quote: do you ever read them?

Oh yes, this one is quite interesting and has some rather beautiful B&W plates. It was dedicated to someone called Jim, written by Ernest Thompson Seton from Canada. An inscription inside the front cover reads "Many Happy Returns May 7 1904"

Wonderful, I am so pleased to have been an inspiration....steal away !

Thanks everyone.

At first I thought that might be a Davy Crockett hat - I had one as a child...(and a wooden rifle dad made for me...)
The camera reminds me of a Halina I once owned...

A fine set-up with the pieces complementing each other well.
