Each week, Dr. B from Buddha Walks into a Wine Bar selects a single theme to point our cameras at or to encourage us to display a few photos from our collections. I certainly don’t present myself as a photographer but I’m happy to root through my photos and select the most passable!!!

I’m cheating a bit (again!) and raiding the archive on this one…..

So here’s my STILL LIFE selection – in homage to my own ‘STILL LIFE’!


If you would like to join Dr B in #challengeyourcamera then here’s what to do:

1.Follow Dr B (link above) to discover the chosen weekly theme.
2. Select or take a few photos related to the week’s theme
3. Post your own photos that week, on any day you like.
4. Include a caption with each photo so we all know what/where it is
5. Include a ping back/link to Dr B’s blog in your post so that he’s notified, can follow you back and can appreciate and comment on your choices.

In addition:

1. Dr. B will follow you back.
2. He will encourage other posters to follow you.
3. He will list each blogger in my weekly post.

It’ll be fun, why not join in?


  1. Hey Ho! I could write your life-story from your collection of bottles and glasses if I didn’t realise they were just this, a collection! Brilliant, and I like the way you’ve arranged them. Who cleared up after though. I had to dispose of my collection of ephemera when I downsized from my Victorian house to a flat, keeping only one from Pat O’Brien’s because we had one of the best ever holidays as we went for a wedding and were able to really explore in the company of a New Orleans resident.

    1. Ephemera – that’s a lovely word – never heard it before so thank you for that!!
      One of my early covid projects when I thought lockdown would last for 3 weeks!! I took everything down because they were falling and a total mess. Of course everything went back up just as bad….
      My Pat O Brien’s glass is from 1989…. It must be a great city to visit with a local…..

    1. Do you collect anything when you’re away Sarah? Apart from this lot I always try to get something for my Christmas tree and then the odd magnet or t-shirt. If I’m lucky, I might find a nice painting or piece of pottery… must admit though that I look a bowl sometimes and wonder where it came from!!!

  2. I love your creative take on this weeks photo challenge; this proves that you don’t need a studio or a fancy location to make a start with still life photography. You can begin by simply walking into your kitchen or any other room! Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend. Aiva 🙂 xxx

  3. Well, I know I won’t be thirsty at your place! These bottles, glasses, cups, etc will be worth a fortune someday! Maybe even now, I don’t know about such things but collectors do! Well done! Cady

    1. I tell my ‘one and only’ regularly that ‘ some day this will all be yours!!! 😅 😂. I’ll barely be in the grave before he takes the lot of them to the dump!!!
