Treasure Chest

A few weeks ago, I was taking photographs of various items about the house as a response to a macro challenge hosted by Susan at Musion’ With Susan. The idea was to use a macro lens for non-macro subjects.

One of my chosen subjects was this highly decorated wooden chest that we bought while living in Abu Dhabi, and which now sits on top of one of our bookcases. The wood is black and the metalwork is silver (silver-coloured, that is), so it wasn’t a great stretch to edit it as a monochrome image.

It is definitely made by hand, so fits the brief for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week.
