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:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Forces

This week, Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo! wants to see an image that shows ‘forces’.

Well, there are certainly powerful forces at work in this detail from a truly remarkable wall-hanging that can be found in the Cité International de la Tapisserie, in Aubusson.
