Is it still a still life if there’s a hand in it?


I’ve been hard at work most of today, when not distracted by apples. (Or coughing. But that’s another story.) I was going to eat this shiny little red apple when I was overcome by a desire to take its picture. In the end, I instead ate a very tasty small russet apple, which was neither red nor shiny. (And now I’m thinking I should have taken its picture, too.)

Now I need to get back to my work.

  1. I guess we have your hand there for scale, to show how really small the shiny red apple is. Otherwise we might think the greenish-yellow one was enormous. It’s a lovely picture.
