Don't know how old these dominoes are - I imagine from the 20s/30s as they belonged to my father in law.

Rainy day here so it's a 'still life' day ... I hope I'm not over-doing the black stuff, but I do like the contrasts it creates.

I am the proud owner of a black glass - topped desk that I picked up from a local freebie website. I could hardly believe it when I saw it cos I'd been looking in the shops for a black mirror tile or some such with no luck. It's ideal for my set ups and I love the reflections, but I'm free to cover it up if I'm so inclined. I had the lighting lowish so there is a bit of noise but it seemed to add to the nostalgia bit.
I had great fun afterwards with adding effects or borders and these turned out the best I think.

Thanks so much again for all your lovely comments etc blessings, Eileen

Three very appealing well worked images with image one being a slight favourite. Nicely composed and captured with well worked lighting.

Thanks for sharing Eileen.
