Photo Friday – Gather

This week in the Be Still – Fifty Two class we’re gathering props and thinking about our personal photography style.

You know you’ve been smitten with the photography bug when your hubby comes home with some wilted and fading flowers (at your request) and you’re thrilled!


This morning, when the light was best, I played around with a few still life shots using things I had gathered from around the house and this afternoon I added the flowers Gerry brought home.


I’m looking forward to experimenting more throughout the week. For now, I’m pleased with these simple and calm images. What do you think?


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. I love the touch of red. This pic could be on a magazine. Very cozy.

  2. These are lovely! Just beautiful. And very professional!

    1. Thank you, Carolyn!

  5. Very pretty, Linda! I recently got my daughter’s Canon Rebel fixed up with a new battery and charger and just need to have her show me how to use it. Photos like yours inspire me.

  6. The wilted flowers (care of a very patient husband ) string , white crochet , streaming morning light …ingredients for beautiful photos .

  7. They are very calming. I especially love the white flower. The minute the discussion of style comes up I freeze! Going to be a tough week for me – my style still varies week to week because I love experimenting too much. We will see if a Style Board helps to define that.

  8. Awesome job! You have a wonderful style.
