Pink hen and flowers

A few weeks ago, when I was thinking about what kind of photos I would like to focus on this year, I was thinking about returning to still life and its creativity.

A few days ago, when I was thinking about spring and Easter, I was thinking about creating something playful and joyful and yet a bit serious.

So here is my little playful yet thoughtful still-life variation featuring a figure of a hen I bought once as a prop…

In a whirl of events

Waiting for a decision


Lost in thought on a sunny day

Lost in expectation

    Your little pink hen is so cute. I can see that you were having fun with this project, and that’s always an important part of photography. I’m looking forward to more of your still-life photos this year. Wishing you and yours a most blessed Easter. He is risen!!!

  2. She is a pretty one! I have been studying the photo to see how the hen was made. Maybe I will try to make one. The background really worked well with the spring colors. I am anxious to see what you do next.

  3. Greetings! Sorry that I have been missing in action and not reading and commenting on your beautiful blog. The last few months have been very hectic and emotional for me as I had to sell the family farm and move my mom into a nursing facility. On top of that I’d been using “Feedly” for all my blog feeds and for some reason during a computer issue they all went away. So now that my life is a little more in order I’m finding my way back and using email for notifications. I love the first image. The movement around that pink little hen is delightful! I love still life photography and will be so eager to see what all you’ve been up to! Hope all has been well with you!

    1. Robin, thank you for your warm words. It was such a nice surprise to see all those new comments of yours this morning, so utterly unexpected. And just imagine, yesterday evening I was on the verge of cancelling and disabling comments on this blog, I only planned to do it today as I was too busy and tired to make it happen…
      I’m so very pleased to hear that you managed to solve all the necessary matters, sometimes it must have been quite painful. I hope you’ll revive your blog now and will share more of your photography, I do miss it.
      PS I was reading the titles to those images above a while ago and I had to smile. The photos must have been speaking to me at the time, where else would I come to the captions! 🙂

      1. Oh, I’m so happy you kept the blog and comments. I know I have a love hate relationship with social media and blogging included. I just keep reminding myself that I photograph and write for ME…first. And then if it benefits others then great! I love how many of us through V&V have stayed connected.
