. . . . in the fading light.
I can feel the serenity….
I’ll pop the kettle on!
Feels like it’s been quiet in there for quite a while…
It’s the escape hatch!
I see so much love here. The material sum of a life.
Brilliant composition, Patti!
Thank you kind Annie!
A far cry from Union Square!
I know it is but sometimes it doesn’t feel that far away . . .
Circles and triangles, curves and arches, light and shade, straight and bent! And still more. Your composition offers such a lot to enjoy Patti!
Thank you so much Philippa! I was going to post more about it and how much I wanted to catch the light but . . . I didn’t. It is raining here in the UK and it has turned me into a lazy mush!
Ah, but you have left all of us so much room to comment Patti! It really doesn’t need words (embarrassed, having already uttered some).
My eyes went right to the tureen…and then to that tiny little key.
Do they still make soup tureens I wonder? Thank you SK! 🙂
a photo (you are cleaning the material sum of your life?) visualizing perfectly the mood of ” raining here in the UK and it has turned me into a lazy mush…”
Frizz, I was cleaning the dust, dirt and cobwebs from the dresser – it was getting a little too organic in there! 24 hours later and I have still to put it all back. Still life in more ways than one . . .
it was getting a little too organic in there = you’ve been too long in the USA: we need two Patties for two continents 🙂
I just want to plop-down in that chair and gaze out the window…
beautiful, Ms. K!
You make yourself at home SiG, bring your lovely Annabelle, and you can have all the soup, and view, you want! I’ll light the fire and the candles!
Beautiful capture, Patti. Love that melancholy end of the day light – hello wistfulness!
Thank you Richard for your most welcome addition of wistfulness to the end of the day. I hope you are relaxing where you are!
It’s such a calm, peaceful and almost ancient atmosphere in this lovely, soft spoken image. The light from the window wraps around the beautiful china on the table. Very nice.
Thank you Otto for your kind and touching words.
Nice shot Patti. Soft and gentle. What makes me think of Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring?
Your Dutch heritage? Thank you Gerard.
nice mood 🙂
Thank you Joshi!
Lovely scene full of wonderful little details – i’m intrigued by the two small objects next to the key – they appear to be thimbles but I suspect not?
The two small objects are brass bolts but I do like the idea that they might be thimbles! Thank you Pat!
Nice composition, Patti!! 🙂
Thank you Arindam although I have to be honest, it was more the art of plonking everything on the table! 🙂
I love this kind of old things, because they are so beautiful. So is the light in this still life. Very nice, Patti.
reminds me of my grandma’s dining room table with all her treasures, and sleepy afternoon light.
So many stories here. Rich with detail. Wonderful!
Beautiful light. Very well captured!
Wonderful. I love the way You captured the mood!
Beautiful and oh so English! Reminds me of some of the colonial bungalows here that had dressers and crockery quite like this! Glad you weren’t in any rush to put them back 🙂
I love the lighting for this shot. Very natural and intimate. A shot like this is often spoiled with strobes and filters. This is how I like it at times.
AAhhh … very traditional setting for an afternnon filled with tea, biscuits and tales.
Quietly blissful ….
