Four Simple Things

Last week’s lesson for the Be Still – Fifty Two class was simply a prompt to photograph four objects: a loaf of bread, a linen of some sort, twine, and a pair of scissors.
Life took me in a different direction last week and I chose to get outside and take a few photos on a country road instead. As luck would have it, this week’s lesson entails that very thing. It seems I unknowingly mixed up the weekly lessons!

This afternoon found me baking bread so it was the perfect opportunity to capture some images for last week’s prompt.


I’m marching to the beat of my own drum these days. And I’m okay with that.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. These still life photos remind me of close-ups in a Vermeer painting. Great work, Linda.

  2. Once again years of dedicated focused work, a career, and family kept is on track. Now we can march to drums or bongos, harps, or whatever catches our fancy. Keep it up.

  3. Linda, These are beautiful photographs that truly represent stillness. Thank you for giving me a quiet moment in my busy day!

    1. Stillness and calm is exactly what I strive for in my photographs, Martha. I’m so pleased that’s what you received from them!

  4. Your photographs are stunning, makes me want to get out my camera.

    1. You should, Karen!

  5. Linda, I love the second image, the crisp detail of the bread. Beautiful. I had to smile when you were describing the reverse succession of the last two weekly lessons, I’ve had the same experience! 🙂
