Life and Aging
The set of still life photographs that I have chosen for this post all represent life and aging.
This is a photo of a forgotten web. The web represents life because it once served as a home for a spider and a trap for its food. I wanted to capture the way that the sun lit up the strands of the web.
This image captures a group of dead tree branches. The branches represent life because they were once part of a living tree that provided a home for insects and animals, as well as providing oxygen to the environment. I liked all of the lines and the angles that the branches created.
This is a photo of a withered bloom. This photo represents life and aging because is was once a beautiful flower, providing a food source for insects. Throughout the flower's life process it also released many seeds in order to create new flowers and new food sources for other insects. I wanted to capture the textures and colours that the weed displayed.
