Today I bought fruit and daffodils

by Sadhya Rippon February. 01, 2013 4166 views

When I posted these on Facebook last night, a couple of friends were worried that I keep bananas in the fruit bowl. Apparently it is a big no no.
Anyone wondering why, here is reason a friend gave me - If you want bananas to ripen more quickly, keep them in a plastic bag, the ethylene will build up and accelerate the ripening. Other fruit use the same trigger so the ethylene released by a ripe banana will also accelerate the ripening of the fruit
Please be assured that I have now removed the bananas to a safe place.

You have moved ahead of late, Sadhya! This is indeed a good study. And I believe without the humble bananas the picture wouldn't have been a complete one.

These still life's are pretty as a picture, Sadhya! Love that Blue Willow bowl, I have some Blue Willow I love..I did not know that about bananas, makes sense..I keep mine in the coolest place on the counter. I love tulips also..have some coming up..get some of every color! :-)

I love the warmth of these Sadhya... And that table - as I have mentioned before - is wonderful...

I much prefer the second one. A wide-angle lens usually offers fascinating close-up / "macro" possibilities. Remember Caravaggio's tricks with depth of field - it's always worth emulating (in my case, ripping off) a master.

These, as well as the "Pink Tulips on the kitchen table", look like still life paintings. This wonderful use of the light, the compositions, your final shots, everything shows that still life can move as well as a beautiful portrait or breathtaking landscape. Great, as always :)

Lovely composition - there's a still life group in Redbubble that would love it. Sorry for your friends who seem in a hurry, but I let mine ripen when they want to.
