The Written

By chase
Taken in daylight camera left.

The embosser you see here does work, really quite well.
The wax belonged to my Dad, why he had it...I don't know but I have a bag full of different coloured wax chunks.

A 3 frame HDR image, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

I like the vignetting with good light on the lovely blue bottle.
How quickly things change as I'm sure many of us remember
some artifacts here.

I shouldn't be surprised if Bob Cratchit walks in and starts work. A wonderful, atmospheric set-piece.

Wonderful still-life, Janet 👍 I have some sealing wax somewhere, along with a stamp with my initial on it! 😃
Please excuse lack of comments this week, been very busy.

You do have many very wonderful old items. Love the worn books. All so photogenic and well put together.

My Dad had some of the wax too. Its one of those things that used to pop up when you were looking for a drawing pin or a cup hook, and there it was " what the devil is that for?"...and back in the tin it went. I am sure it is still knocking a tin somewhere Wink
Great arrangement....Sure I can smell ink Grin

A desk from a bygone era, presumably belonging to the person in charge of the office mail.
A fine collection, Janet.

A usual a beautifully arranged still life Janet and an excellent recreation of the feel of an old study from 100 years ago or more.
lovely objects and books; haven't I seen that llittle watch before?
Excellent composition and subject Janet, the red wax reminds me of my first job in a Solicitors office where we used it on conveyances etc.
