Kicking Off a New Month

and a new theme-I warned you earlier-

Still Life studies will be the focus this month for me–I am  going to try to do one a day–we will see how that holds up-

I thought too, I might include an interesting factoid about still life photography and art each time I post.

Factoid for today:

Still Life studies as an art form dates back to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. In fact, surviving Roman mosaics called “emblema”, were often found in the homes of the wealthy; the mosaics depicted food as well as symbols of hospitality, abundance and celebrations of life.
