POTD: Cafe Still Life

POTD: Cafe Still LifeCafe Still Life Paris, France 2013

It’s four o’clock in the morning here in Bozeman, but part of my body anyway still recognizes that it is noon in Paris. I didn’t want to be up but couldn’t sleep, so here I am up and at it. Maybe I’ll shoot for a nap later–which should really screw up the jet-lag thing. I took this photo one day while we were eating lunch at a brasserie on St. Germaine Blvd. It was probably right after visiting a museum with lots of old Dutch still life paintings which I admire a lot and of which this arrangement has some passing similarities (albeit without the usual collection of flowers, fruits, vegetables, and dramatic side lighting).]]>
