Wonderful textures, Moira, I wonder if today's modern suitcases will last that long? Carol

Thanks early birds. What I noticed with this subject was the way that the torn canvas leaves its imprint on the wood.
Got to go out - I'll call back in later.

I wonder who owned such a chest, where has it been, so many questions to ask, and I am sure so many tales tell. A great image, full of wonderfully defined textures and tones, whilst the warming light adds a gentle feeling to the piece.

Just back home - thanks everyone, and particular thanks to John (alsoppdigitart) and John (lifesnapper) for their much appreciated UAs.
Marvellous tactile image Moira.

Is this where airline baggage handlers learn their trade?

I was uptown having lunch, and whilst waiting for it to be served, browsed my EPZ faves on my iPhone, and this one really stood out Wink A cracking composition and presentation, Moira, with super tones and textures....with the added bonus of some Saturday Shadows too! Smile Think I might just have to give this my UA....Wink

When I read this comment I had to go back and have another look, you're right. Isn't that odd?

Fabulous shot Moira, one of the best of it's kind methinks!

kind regards,

Excellent take Moira and most interesting, I did look again at the underneath of the canvas and agree with you - it's good to know the museum at Beamish are interested and have taken it.

Love this one, Moira, so beautifully composed, it speaks to me of my years in the antiques trade when I saw many chests in this condition, but like old teddy bears, which we would term well-loved, their charm is in the wear and tear, and the idea that it has travelled far and seen many fascinating places.
