The gallery: week 14 Still Life
Categories: blogging mums

Funnily enough these images are both taken in Ibiza.

The first is on a yoga retreat which was brilliant and a month later I started my blog. I use this image for my screen saver on my laptop because it’s so calming. It’s a shame it doesn’t look so good against the page colour but you get my drift! We stayed in a finca and this was the fireplace on the outside terrace.

This second image is from much sunnier days thankfully and snapped in August 2009.

And the place is a street cafe in Ibiza Old Town. It had a subtext. I was planning to give up smoking, hence the empty ash tray, which I only noticed afterwards. It’s a miracle to me. I have stopped smoking now for six months. I was very taken with the pyschedelic flyer, Audrey Hepburn’s image is always somewhere around isn’t it?

These photographs are not just still life images, they are postcards from life changing times. They mean much more than they appear to – it’s quite subjective this still life stuff isn’t it?

    Well done on the fags.

    I really enjoyed old Ibiza town, on the all too brief occasions I have visited her.
