Vase leaf and teapot - # 08/212

The weather is awful. Not only is it raining heavily day after day, but the sky is totally grey, covered for weeks on end with thick cloud that obscures the sun. Tomatoes are not ripening, but bushes and weeds are growing strongly provoking visions of severe hard labour in the garden.

I turned to indoor "still life" photos to distract myself.

The lovely red hue on the tea pot and its shape caught my eye and then next to it the vase and leaf, lit by a brief, but welcome, moment of brightness shining into the room.


  1. I am used to seeing B&W images on your blog so this really pops off the page. It reminds me of something Babooshka said over at GDP..."Red and green need to be seen"

    I real photographer finds something to work with whatever the weather or circumstances and this image illustrates that beautifully. Bravo!

  2. That kind of weather is really tough on daily photo photographers! Hope it clears soon. Meanwhile, this is a neat photo.

  3. I like it.
    It's the water and the glass that does it (or is it, 'do it'?) for me.

  4. Beautiful still life. Love that deep red and the green together and the light on the vase.
