A living in Lisbon (PORTUGAL) happened with the FLOWER COURT Apartment in this winter.The living room was enriched with white walls , curtains, the wooden and metal craft works and another curios in glass,wood and clothes. The contrasting reds of the furnishings with the white of the wall ,the fittings, Lamps with their shades in cloth and paper provided a sense of vigor and vibrancy to the entire space.While the painting on the wall depicted a far away view of the landscape and the history of the land, the metal sculptures arranged in an array on the table set a pace of movement to the atmosphere of the entire living space of the FLOWER COURT in LISBON,the Capital of Portugal!
The artisans were able to have enough wood from the land ; they planned to carve innumerable sculptors out of the wood they got; they thought of a huge animal found in the land to be sculpted out of the stuff they had got and thus a lot of wooden elephants were born out of the wood which they got; now those elephants fill up the courtyard of the artisans with a question of what the viewers would do with this much of wooden sculptors stuffed with skill and substance !? ( these artifacts are from the extensive showrooms of Srilanka’s craftsmanship)
Still-Life shot in daylight within the household with utensils,vegetables and fruits using my NIKON600D with an 80-200mm Zoom during the sunlit days of the past years summertime.No flashes are used but the natural light coming through the windows and grills….!
The dusk went away slowly and it was time to lit up the lamps inside the house to have the dining.A tin lamp was lit up on to the dining table .Utensils were ready for serving the rustic supper.The lamp was not bright when lit up ,gradually it came brighter as the night grew darker.When the eating was over and the night was dense and darker, the lamp shone brighter enjoying the delightful night…!
I got these utensils on the tabletop of dining in the late nights of the December last year from my Canon 500D . I had tried here to capture the mood of celebration of the festivity and tones of concentration that radiates the spirits of the chilling night of the month that embarks the end of an year. I believe in this long-duration shot that the late night effects have been caught up in the shot with the stillness of the vegetables placed among the loving tones of dark roses and magenta,
