On Saturday morning I went to the farmer's market and, among other things, happened to buy a bunch of seven peonies. I gave them to my wife and she added some things from our garden to create a very nice arrangement. On Sunday afternoon, when I had no Lucky 7 entry, I asked if I could pull the peonies temporarily to take a few shots. She said, "Couldn't you use something else? We have seven of other things, like... peaches?"

Still life is a genre that I am still trying to figure out. This is the best I could do for today.

I love Peonies, lucky wife :)

I think you did a great job, the lighting is very nice, and the comp perfect with the two peaches out of the bowl.
