A few days ago I posted Erika and two of the grandkids walking in the apple orchard.
Then Steve’s art on the mantel with the Granny Smith apple.
Just for fun I did a google search – Apple and rutheh. Quite a few photos of apples or some form of apples appeared in the results. Many apple photos over the years of blogging. Some other fruit appeared and even some tomatoes as I scrolled down. Here are a few examples of apple photos from previous posts.
There is the Before they Get to the Store post showing how Honey Crisps are grown in Washington.

My next door neighbor, who is an artist, suggested I put things together in my house, create a still life and photograph them.
I shot the flowers in the pottery vase the other day.
Here is today’s collection.
Saw these all lined up on the dining room mantel this afternoon. The light coming in through the stained glass window. I thought it looked serene

Sometimes you need to brighten up your surroundings
Reblogged From March 2010 -if you’ve followed since the start, you remember this photograph
Old seltzer bottles, a birdcage, the texture of the wicker, some stained glass at dusk.
J’s front porch with the sun sinking behind. Condensation inside the old glass, the metal tops. Artists usually arrange inanimate objects to create a still-life to paint or draw. This was already there, waiting.
