A Handbag?

By SlowSong
A rather lovely art deco handbag on exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum. Sorry for the colour popping. I don't usually like to do that but the decoration just sort of yelled out for it.

Very interesting and popping works well with this image, Chris.

What a lovely object, you are right! Was it displayed like that? Too bad, it deserves more attention, but at least you caught it. Regards, Paul

I think the colour popping was a good choice... It works well.

Colour popping works well, Chris, as does the diagonal aspect. You're not going to fit your camera in there though!!

I'm not a fan of selective colour either, but this works a treat.

Not sure I would have figured out what it was. It is a well observed striking image.

The selective colouring works well in this Chris.

I personally love Art Deco, and I think your colour popping works well on this.

No, that was my first thought. I just don't buy bags which don't have room enough for a camera. Grin
