WAITING STILL

By keithh  
The hardest thing when taking these photos, is stopping the horrible light flares that these brass candlesticks can give off.

I think a few more people looked and found it disturbing. Which is what it is meant to be after all.

Cheers guys

Cheers guys. That's odd, Matt. I'm working on a version right now where Miss Havisham is in the back of my mind. I call it Miss Havisham's Cellar.

Love it.

The penny has dropped

It's the narrative the image conveys, not the elements within the image

Yep...its one thing having a bunch of stuff, its another to make connections. Just chucking a few things on a table, is not still life - its chucking a few things on a table, but the elements have to connect with the narrative, they are still very important. All of the elements in this image have symbolism or offer up a story.

With most of your still life's, the opening speech in Shakespeare play as you like it comes to mind.
