A flea market is filled with unique objects invoking curiosity, nostalgia, humor and surprise. A blue and white Pyrex bowl
recalls helping Grandma mix stuffing for holidays past. A cut-crystal candy dish reminds us just how much we love that old-world pink color. A darkly framed formula-landscape evokes dreams of scary monsters. A planet-shaped radio, reflecting design aspects of the early Star Wars days, reminds us of the exact one we had as a kid, except in yellow.

These objects and curiosities are a ripe cache for inspiration - as is the community at the Cleveland Street Flea Market, where some of the vendors have been in business there since the market opened sixteen years ago.

I embellished a common plain table based memories of Florida. I purchased a souvenir plate of Florida; got out my saw and went from there.

Winner Stilled Life Photography Competition Country Roads Magazine

Winner Stilled Life Photography Competition Country Roads Magazine

For Lizi Ward’s winning shot, she admits it might have been snapped on the fly with her much-used Fuji Finepix s8000, somewhere on the road between Natchez and St. Francisville. “It was one of those times that the sun was so spectacular that you truly could not ignore it.”

Ward, who has spent over 45 years making art, finds inspiration in Louisiana’s natural beauty. She first took up photography as a method of documenting her paintings. Even now, she says her pictures have a “painterly” feel. Soon she found herself snapping thousands of pictures of the world around her. “It’s just another medium,” she says of this creative extension.

Before 2010 Ward had never been outside New Orleans on her treks to discover Louisiana. She spent 62 years as a Memphian before her husband got a job in Baton Rouge. When they did take up residence here, they made short order of repairing those Gulf State blindspots.

From the frequent festivals to the wildlife refuges, Ward...
