Mute Swan in low key – an avian still life, posing for me or, rather, probably threatening me. Swans are worthy of great respect.

ARCHIVE STILL LIFE
This is a new category on this blog – Archive Still Life studies. The Still Life definition will certainly be followed loosely – e.g. some studies may only have been made “still” by the split second opening of the camera’s shutter – and my objective will be to use as many different types / genres of subject matter as possible. Some images will be Minimalist and, in general, I try to make simpler images, rather than cramming them with visual content.
Some new Still Life studies will (hopefully!) continue to appear.
I remember this (I’m pretty sure) very fondly. What a superb study.
Gary, thank you very much. 🙂
