    Default Please help me! Meaning of still life

    This is the problem I am in right now.
    I have this picture of a place that is very quiet and still... but when i showed it to my friend, he said it doesnt fall in the Cat of Still Life. Just to ask, am I able to tweak/manipulate the meaning of the word still life?

    Still Life is about an object. A watch, a pair of shoes, a cup....
