Still Life Photo Challenge

I enjoy the Photo Challenges that Donna gets us going on!  Thanks for challenging us to put something together and sharing it with others.

I also enjoy making collages of my pictures, so I hope that is okay that I group a few things together.
I use a Canon Rebel XSi and usually just wing it!!  I really should take a class or two and learn more about my camera.

It is another beautiful autumn day here in Southern Alberta .... perfect for getting outside and capturing a few more Autumn images.  enjoy the day everyone!



Sunflowers, autumn leaves, and a quote..
 I use Picmonkey for some fun editing and in this picture
just put a texture over top of the whole collage.



This is one of my favorite bowls, so I took it on a little photo shoot of its own!



Apples on a scale
Edited in Picmonkey


Mailboxes near Harmony, CA

Wow these are wonderful. Love the collages with the cute quotes. Hard to pick a favorite here but there's something about those mailboxes. Something so ordinary turned into a very stunning photo.

Great images, Donna. I'm so glad I live in a month with Octobers, too! Your wooden bowl makes such a wonderful prop for your photos. Enjoy these beautiful autumn days!

Great pictures. I love them all. You did an amazing job on all the shots.

Donna said...

Each one of these brings a smile to my face! Oh, if I had a handsome wood bowl like that, I would be inspired to do a lot of photo shoots with it too! Love the textures that you feature in the autumn scenes. And the simplicity of the apples on the scale is superb. This wasn't a challenge for you at all! I hope you will continue to join in with us each month, and I am delighted that you are having fun.

I love your photos and especially the collages. But I must say the the one of the mail boxes was my favorite, it spoke to me, telling me a story of everyday life and times gone by. Thank you for sharing! xxDazee

These are really gorgeous and I never thought of the texture over the whole collage.

The autumnal ambiance of Southern Alberta, present in your beautiful collages, temporarily relieves my homesickess for my native Canada. Thank you for these gorgeous images.
