Nature Still Life (Two Photographs) – and a link to my new Gallery of Farms

I happened on this arrangement and have no idea how it came about, human or squirrel intervention seems possible. It was a short fall shooting season given my schedule and the weather, so one of my favorite fall pastimes of shooting the forest floor for more intimate landscapes was limited. I have tried this shot in color and black and white and I am showing the results simply to reveal the possibilities.

  1. I like the images (and prefer the black and white one), because they tell a story. They suggest a scenario that led to this result and calls on viewers to use their imagination.

  2. It is really evident with these two how B/W & color create different moods. In the color, you notice the cone, bark and moss/lichen in the happy aftermath of a squirrel’s picnic. In B/W, you note the cone most prominently and the mood is more somber. Great examples, Victor…thanks!

    • Thanks. Interesting experiment. Maybe sometime soon I will be more comfortable with B&W.

  3. The circle of life is real to trees. Why? Just check out their mature trunks and see how time can pass from one ring to another.

  4. Your beautiful gallery of Farms reminds me of my very happy and secure childhood 😉 Though we didn’t live on a farm, we lived in rural areas and had both neighbors and family friends who were farmers – scenes like these lovely views were so common to us back then.

    • Nice to hear. It’s just what a photographer wants to hear that his photographs evoked something. Thanks.
