my childhood teddy bear
ragged from many years of snuggles
this poor old bear - missing both eyes, part of an ear, and a fair amount of stuffing,
has traveled with me from home to home
- and now resides on my bedroom dresser
I knew a couple of weeks ago that my teddy bear would be the subject of this prompt
- which brought me into the realm of still life photography
- something I know absolutely nothing about
Reading articles about lights, backdrops, reflectors...
I thought to myself - yeah, I'm not doing any of that
So I moved my bear about the house - seeking a setting that felt right
- and when I placed him on this antique chair,
letting the outdoor lighting provide the backdrop,
it all just sort of clicked for me

Do you have a cherished childhood item?
I'd love to see it captured in a photo!
