Lincoln museum - Tea time

By xwang
Dug up an old folder that I'd never got round to finish. I didn't do anything on this one apart from put 50%soft light layer on and sharpened a bit. The rest is as taken.
In the old was sent via postcards..
Have a cup of tea, NO cake! Grin It looks like that you have to be left handed...Smile The photo was taken in Lincoln museum. Thanks for looking.

Left handed will do me. Shame about the clock face but a lovely image of yesteryear (and my mother still has her singer sewing machine!)

I agree about the clock, a nice interior shot.

Thank you, Dave. Yes, the clock's face was 'blown out'. It was the reflection from the window light. Singer sewing machine, it's like the Old trains.. people still love them. I saw them in antique fair a lot.. Believe it or not, I even bought one without base. I had a small electric one as well, but I've never used it, because I don't sew..Grin Just a nice idea.
Thank you all.

Having been in the antiques trade for 20 years, I just love to see a setting like this, Jasmine.
I've been thinking about a crop to the top, down to the edges of the picture rail (why don't we have those these days???). The bright ceiling light keeps pulling my eye.
As has been said, a shame about the clock face.

Thank you very much, Pamela. Yes, it can be 'removed'.. When I took the photo, I thought that I liked the shade...But actually it doesn't fit in, ... wrong period, because there was an oil lamp on the table. It looks tidier without it.
Thank you all.

I agree, cropping out the top light would improve this image, and it is a shame about the clock face, but there is some fascinating detail in here.

Blimey Jasmine, I thought I was back at my Grand Mothers place as a child, could almost smell the cabbage stewing in the kitchen Phew, and she did have oils lamps and electric so is quite authentic if distracting, don't mind about the clock face not a lot you can do about that! in all fine reminder of days gone by, and it was totally boring when we went there lol. regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
