Inanimate Objects

I've spent a lot of time looking at inanimate objects in the last two years....This morning I discovered some are sadder than others...
For your morning chuckle, enjoy!

Marlene, I wonder what that tagger was trying to convey? Things that make you go 'Hmmm. . .'

Here's an inanimate setting that feels very sad to me. So much so, that I've noticed I frown when looking at the image. It felt that way the day I shot it, which is what initially caught my attention and inspired me to crawl around on a coffeeshop floor. Sad. :-(

I can imagine the woman who stood at this sink for endless hours waiting for her cowboy to ride in.

Here is my current favorite inanimate object, which seems a little ironic. The wheel implies movement, but it is definitely not going anywhere.

Here are three of mine.
That old sofa really called to me - so much so that I actually went back with a tripod and took a self-portrait - sat very gingerly and a bit rigidly on the very front edge as it was pretty dirty looking LOL I think the SP has a sort of American Gothic feel. I expressed some of the feeling it evoked in me in the title.
And the whimsy of the hat on the window frame in a garden delighted me when I first saw it and continues to make me smile when I look at it. I love printing this one up as a card and sending it to someone just because - especially in the spring when the world is waking up to color and freshness and hope once again.
And I think I can fit one more on this line. This coat was hanging just as you see it in the hallway of my mother's dentist's office. I had taken her for a cleaning and check-up and noticed it from the waiting room. I asked permission to take the picture - the office staff looked at me strangely, laughed, and said sure, go ahead. This is one I like even more now than I did when I took it because I sent a post card of it to a friend who was beginning chemo and she LOVED it. Said she used to have a houndstooth coat just like that and she loved the randomness of the image and the memories it evoked.

I was at a camp for kids and they had a cake decorating contest. After looking at bin after bin of stuff available to decorate, one group of boys grabbed something from each bin and threw it on the cake. This sort of randomness was not welcomed by the other adults. Me, I liked it and created some of my own later with the same objects.

I like to see things from a different angle. This beautiful grand piano caught my eye during a rehearsal and I thought to take a photo of it.

I liked the contrast of the black tire against the bright yellow of the 1958 tractor wheel.

Guilty as charged, Marlene. To be honest, I did not even notice the link - and even after you mentioned it and I went back to look, I had trouble finding it because it is so small and unobtrusive and, well, discrete. Sorry.
Maybe something like this? The taxi looks aggressive and determined with his high forehead, his brow furrowed and thick eye-brows pulled in together over those small beady eyes.

Sorry Marlene, for stepping outside the parameters.

By the way, why do you think this image is always deleted when entered in "Still Life" contests??

 

Marlene Burns

hehe. the answer to that question is:
Cuz the old coots all look like they are in position for bowel MOVEMENTS.
Hence, not STILL life.
