Still Life Photography

With the day starting out gray and rain moving in I decided to shoot some pictures indoors. I really DID NOT want to set up lights, reflectors and all the others things normally used in still life shots, especially with three grandkids playing store in the house.  A quick walk through showed the best light was coming in the front bedroom window. This window has blinds and a sheer lace curtains, perfect for defusing the light. Now all I had to do was find something that I could photograph. My first thought was to run pickup some cut flowers, but that would be too easy.
