November monthly special

Take-out Photo's November monthly special is Still Life: A few of my favorite things.

It doesn't involve any Photoshop, so the only challenge is figuring out which favorite things to photograph. It took a bit of narrowing, but I had to go with:

letters and words.

There's not much I love more than letters and words, in all their forms: monograms, books, abécédaires, correspondence, typography, and yes -- even Boggle. They make me oh so happy.

What are a few of your favorite things?

On the couch, in fleece jammie pants with a bajio salad watching a movie after the kids are in bed.

At-home date night!

crystal said...

GREAT picture, by the way!

I love this photo. It's like a simplified Eye Spy.

My favorite things that could be photographed? Hmmmm. I'm going to think about that and do it. I'll bet food is somewhere in it.

Lucy said...

Really nice photo, Michelle. A stack of books right next to any bed makes me smile.

Amy said...

I knew I liked you! Boggle is my favorite game...and it saved my mood last Saturday. Jim & I played in our bed for about an hour and haven't laughed so hard in a long time.

Great photo. I jumped into last month's challenge, but have been hesitant with this month because it seems to require some actual photography skill.

Jill said...

This picture is just plain happy to look at. It's interesting to me though because you have so many interests that there are many different ways you could have done this still life.

Kelly said...

Ah, that picture is so appealing and peaceful to me. I absolutely love it. It doesn't hurt that I see two of my favorite books on your stack, either!

Alison said...

We'll play Scrabble someday!

Susan said...

Fabulous composition! I love it.

Favorite things? WAY too many to name! A few would be textiles, buttons and shoes. /And, you, of course!

I like how monochromatic the photo is. Finally, someone else has done the Monthly Special! I thought this one would be easy, but apparently it's scaring people away.

lelly said...

i love your photo composition, and when i read what marc wrote, i realized that a large part of it's appeal is the monochromatic color scheme. was that intentional?

thanks for posting this. it jogged my memory that i really want to do the special this month!

Hannah said...

Oh this is a good one! I love the colors and lighting. It is so perfect for you to have done this as one of your favorite things.

April said...

Well, I love this.

On so many levels.

Words are absolute magic.

jenn said...

REALLY great photo Michelle! Now I am scared to try it!

Favorite things? It's lunch time, so all I can think of is foods.

rmt said...

I really, really like this photo and I think your personality and talents come through clearly in it. Fabulous job.

wende said...

this is a beautiful still life about your michelle. and i couldn't agree more! i love words, maybe that's why i like to blog and read so much?

i think this definitely needs to be printed and framed in your studio. perfect.

Denise said...

I love this photo! Is that the tray from Target that your mom gave you in the background? I love the colors. You're pretty much amazing.

I love Scrabble, but haven't played much since Grandma can no longer see to do so.

amy m said...

michelle this is a really cool photograph. I really love your composition.

There is something about the way boggle looks that is so pleasing.

TX Girl said...

I've been promising myself I would go back and do all of Marc's monthly specials. I have loved looking at your contribution. I love the boggle.

Amie said...

I really need to get on board with this... every time I see the great things you guys are doing it reminds me that it is one more great project you have that I don't... dumb, I know, but the months go by so fast...

carlo said...
