This was shot at the monthly meeting of the Ohio Valley Camera Club, where Iris Burd gave a nice program on still life photography. Update: here's a link to the lighting setup that was used: 1 softbox and 1 sidelight with barndoors and both with cool florescent bulbs. Many thanks to Iris for the props and the educational presentation. Many thanks to Mike Adkins for the lighting setup and arranging the above photo.


We move among the things
we thought we wanted:
a face, a room, an open book
and these things bear our names—
now they want us.
But what we want appears
in dreams, wearing disguises.
