I have really begun to enjoy still life photography over the last few months. I think as my son has become more active still life photography has given me a calm place to take a deep breath and be creative. I have several still life photos from this quarter, so it was hard to pick a favorite. I chose this photo, because it reminds me of my granny. As many of you know, my maternal grandmother passed away earlier in the week. These rosaries have hung from this lamp in her bedroom for years. She may not have been Catholic, but she loved Jesus and always adored these rosaries. The morning after her funeral I was walking around the house with my camera in tow. I fell in love with the way the light was falling on the body of Christ and something about the single strand cob web reminded me of the amount of time it had been since my granny had visited those rosaries.
I am entering this photo in Branson, Courtney K., and Courtney N.'s new still life challenge. Be sure to head over and check out the other entries. You can join while you are there.
