Villa Column in Black & White ~ I decided to try the wonderful details in this column and ceiling decoration in black and white. The column was at the Getty Villa Museum in Malibu, California. Although I liked the colors in the original, the details show up quite differently once the color is gone.
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.
