Still Life

“Still life”: a painting or drawing of an arrangement of objects, typically including fruit and flowers and objects contrasting with these in texture, such as bowls and glassware. It’s an interesting description since I find that anything I photograph becomes still. A moment of stillness is captured even if it is of a moving object. A still photograph is life frozen in time.

Jardin des Tuileries, Paris

It was hot summer’s day in Paris. I was walking around in the heat and found a spot to stop and wait in the part shade. I love trees and love leading lines. I needed a person or living thing to be in my frame. I waited and waited. A lot of people came by but it wasn’t the right moment. Then I saw this girl walking towards me and it looked like she was going to cross the path. I looked down at my Hasselblad and waited for the right moment. It must have been almost an hour before I clicked the shutter. I only had one shot. Then I had an ice cream.
