I find beauty in old objects…and below are a few images of some beautiful objects I recently photographed. The objects in these pictures are no doubt very old, but being old isn’t enough…being true to my style I photographed these objects from a juxtaposed angle and a close up view brings out lovely patterns and textures.

I found the trunks to be especially interesting….I was fascinated by their texture and color. In places the leather is puckered and wrinkled….much like an elderly face.

All the items here date from around the 1850’s. Real people in times long ago used these items in their daily lives. Like each person has a story to tell….so do these objects….these beautiful old souls silently tell their story to anyone who is willing to listen.
