I’ll be honest, I had to do a bit of research for this instalment of #marchmeetthemaker because I had NO clue what flat lay was. Yes, I am a bit lost when it comes to jargon but when I did eventually figure out what this was I fell in LOVE! There are so many possibilities I think it may be my new favourite way to take photos. I think it may give rise to a new hashtag #Savageflatlayporn. I wonder if it will catch on…

As you can see I definitely need to improve my skills but I had so much fun raiding my cupboards to see what props I could use. When setting this up my mind went back to something my Nana always used to say when describing today’s culture. Ain’t got a minute to live. And she was so right. We can get so caught up in the day’s ‘busy-ness’ that we forget to stop and take stock.

With this picture I hope it inspires people to enjoy a slow moment. So grab your favourite Savage, or maybe a glass of bubbles and take a minute to live.
