Secondly, I'm happy and honored to have my photo featured today in Chapter 4 of Still Life, part The Pulse, an ongoing online collaborative project by Seth Apter of The Altered Page. Seth is an inspiration to me because he seems to get 10 times as much done as any other person, and still manages to be a genuinely nice guy. I'm pretty sure that if did all that, I'd be tired and cranky! If you haven't seen the earlier editions, please check them out as well; there have been a wonderful variety of still life photos by amazing artist-bloggers who you may not have met yet!
I've enjoyed perusing all the photos so far; it's interesting to see what they reveal about the artists. Sometimes the photo seems to "fit" them completely; others you would never guess in a million years. And you'll find many fascinating new blogs to explore.
