I spent the day with Joy and Samuel today.
I find her house provides an endless supply of images for me - especially through her windows. This is of her pepper mill by the blinds.
I'm off to March tomorrow for a couple of days with my brother as its half term, so this will be my last upload for a while.
Many thanks to everyone who has left C&C on my recent images
I'm very grateful for all the encouragement and support
Helen

another well seen image who would have thought of venetian blinds and what lays beyond to make a picture - well done, just seen the pepper mill to, dashed with reflective spots a nice little sideline

So many layers in this - the blind is reflected in the window as well as casting its pattern within the room.

Great shot, Helen, like how the strong lines of the blind lead the eye in towards the peppermill. Works very in mono, don't think colour would have as much impact.

What a super image, all perspective and straight lines, complemented by the lovely curves of the pepper mill. And as if that isn't enough, it's topped off by those marvellous streaks of light among the shadows. Gets my UA instantly!!
