You seem to forget that art is in constant development, a 21st century still life must not necessarily look like a 17th century one.

I reiterate that what I said I'm looking for is a link to traditional still lifes, and not necessarily grapes, cheese, wine, and other elements that would constitute a rehash of what was done to death by 1800. (That being said, I'm happy with photographic remakes of Dutch masterpieces.)

But to me, a still life still needs to be composed, not candid; it still needs to be about light and shadow, not just the subject; and it needs to be of inanimate objects, not living things. All the photos you posted have that in common (ETA: except for the Warhols), and many of the photos submitted to this challenge do not.
