Memories in Black & White ~ This still life was set up and photographed to illustrate a poem I wrote for my most recent book, "The Captured Heart". It was shown in color in the book, but I wantd to try it also in black and white.
Artifacts of Long Ago ~ This still life began with an old original deed dated in 1772, for a piece of property purchased by one of my ancestors, John Nichols. He purchased 72 acres in what is now Massachusetts, for the sum of "thirty and four pounds". I added in a few other family artifacts from long ago, and recently changed it all to black and white.
The First Laptop ~ This bas relief sculpture was from Ancient Greek times, seen at the Getty Villa Museum in Malibu, California. I noticed the woman, accompanied by her attandant, who is holding what I interpret to be "the first laptop". I got a kick out of it, and had to photograph it.
