I am no fan of still life, but as there is no restriction on dead animals this time, I may throw something together. Without grapes!

Still life in French is 'Nature Morte' - dead nature, so you can bring on the corpses and no-one will mind!

Only one, very dead, animal, and I'm sure you'll be disgusted.

Remember the entry I did years ago of my hubby on his cycle trainer. There was a drop of sweat hanging off the end of his nose. People were disgusted by that.  Is rotten dead corpses not worse than that? Remember it needs to contain something you can eat.

Wasn`t going to bother again this week as I`m just not doing much photography just now then noticed my wife had laid out last night`s left over fruit in exactly this order on some kitchen roll and thought "There`s an idea". Been done I know but why not... Moved it onto black background and constructed a crap frame  :)

A fun entry Jinky. Great stuff. I managed to avoid fruit, though I have a lovely Pear (oooerr missus) photo which I was tempted to enter.

I didn't want to do a (terribly) clich├ęd shot, and had a couple of bits of fruit left in the bowl. I also wanted to try out the automatic focus stacking on the TG-4, and to much delight it works really well.
