An Artful Arrangement

I am musing on "still life" over at Mortal Muses today, head over to see a companion photo to this one. This theme encouraged me to photograph two of my favorite foods of Italy - Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Amarone della Valpolicella wine. Yum. Both of these items will be much harder to find and quite a bit more expensive when we return home, so I am enjoying them as much as possible now.

Not only that, but I was able to capture this still life in our beautiful kitchen. Aren't those marble countertops nice? The apartment we're living in here has much nicer finishes than our home in Oregon, and we've gotten a little spoiled.

It's nice to capture these little memories in an artful and intentional way. I'm on a quest to photograph "what I'll miss" in the next few months before we move back to the US. I'm going to be a blubbering mess as we get closer to actually moving - we have just over four months left!


  1. I love your still life composition here and sounds like it will be very hard for you to leave, it will go so quickly. I see you are doing picture inspiration too, I signed up for some inspiration!

  2. Mmmm, cheese and wine, I have many nice memories related to those 2 wonderful things :)

  3. Cheese and wine. What could be better!

  4. This just calls out Italia -- I love the composition! What a wonderful experience you're having in Europe, and you will have some many beautiful photos to help you remember.

  5. Gosh, I can't believe you only have 4 months left. Time flies.

  6. i saw this at mortalmuses and it looks so so so good!


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
