Morning Light Still Life



I was putting out breakfast this morning and when I closed the fridge door and turned around, I was arrested by the morning light illuminating the countertop. It makes a simple scene -- juice, Greyere, paintbrushes, plant -- so inviting.

Is that black countertop? I think I'm going to go with black again, if I can't get real butcher block. Love this photo; I can "feel" the morning light in a sleepy, warm kind of way.

Your house is so pretty!

Yep, it's black countertop. Nothing great, and really scratched up, but supposedly you can buff out the scratches....I need to get that done! I love a black backdrop (as you can tell from this blog!)

Yes, what a warm, inviting atmosphere. I enlarged the photo hoping to see what kind of cheese you were eating, but no go.

It was" Le Greyere", raw milk cheese, from Switzerland. :-)

We were just in Gruyere in September! Thanks for satisfying my curiousity. : )

Such a beautiful, modern day still life. That light is so peaceful. I like the room in the background, too!

Great still life, Beth. Even at eleven at night here, it makes me feel morning-ish.

That's neat! There's a warm glow about it.

the combination of light, cheese, plant... all very inviting!

That is sort of weird that we'd have the same morning experience! Great shot (and I for one would love a photo tour of your home!).

Thanks about the house. I really love it and it feels homey to me. Well, the downstairs where I live feels homey...the upstairs feels like boys who could care less about interior ambiance. But maybe I'll do a photo tour of the downstairs, once it's clean! :-)
