Tapestry close-up

Cee’s Black & White challenge this week is ‘Close-up’. That ‘s usually a cue for a tight shot of a flower, or maybe a creepy-crawly of some description. However, close-up doesn’t necessarily mean macro, just something that shows more detail than a standard image.

So this is not a macro photograph, but rather a detail from a tapestry in the Cité International de la Tapisserie museum in Aubusson. The monochrome treatment highlights the painstaking intricacy of the handwork that went into creating the overall image.

For reference, here is the colour version:
