pics | b&w






hello, hello! thank you for sharing some of the things you're enjoying these days. they were great and other than photography many involved food, which is probably to be expected as the temperatures get cooler and we head indoors. i also loved the stories of your childhood haircuts - my mom liked baby bangs - yikes!

something new i've been enjoying is fiddling around with using black & white in my photos. i like how it seems to give an image a more vintage feel, but i do like my colors. well, the winner of the expressive photography book is line who is quite the shutter bug herself. congratulations and please send me your address!

xo, cindy

ps the bottles are from charlie's collection. he sold most of it before i got into photography, but there are still some cool bottles. clearly marked poison, one contains coffin-shaped tablets to be mixed with water for use as an antiseptic. more b&w here.

The photos look to elegant and soft. The old bottles are great aren't they? They remind of me of a mad scientist or cross your fingers and good luck when you take one pills!

Oh my gosh Cindy! Those bottles are to die for! I especially *love* the one with the scull and cross bones on the label! Yay Charlie for his collection, and YAY YOU for taking such an amazing image of them!!! Awesome :)

i love monochromes...and my favorite is definitely the one of the bottles. i always had a thing for glass-i love the touch, feel, smell--all about it. i think it was one of the reasons i studied chemistry, actually.
happy week

I love bw photos. The bottles are so...cool. I bet Charlie's corner of treasures are fun to go through. How is Charlie doing? xo

charlie has the coolest things tucked away in drawers. he showed me these beautiful letters from the 1920s written in czech and was going to throw them out. no way!

he's doing ok with some tests scheduled later this month. things are moving slowly and i think that is fine.

Gorgeous contrasts in these! I actually asked for a lot of B&Ws for our wedding photos. Really love 'em.

Those bottles are VERY cool!
