I think chrome and glass is pretty. . . as long as it's in some other person's home. Not mine. Nope. I have no desire to live with the "contemporary look". Just call me an old-fashioned girl.
My grandfather's late 1800's steamer trunk rests in our lingering room. He brought it from Belgium and I inherited it when he passed from this life to the next. The trunk has traveled with me from Illinois to California, back to Illinois, on to Ohio and finally now in Colorado. It tenderly reminds me of where I came from.
This morning I played around with photographing an old jar filled with white flowers. I shot it in several vignettes before placing it on the floor in front of the trunk. I think the processing of the photo gives it an antique quality. What do you think?
