...and here is a shot of how yesterday's image looks inside.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Nice composition. I like the monochrome.

The kitchen is so organized. Here in Ukraine, there are many people who has kitchens like this, but not so tidy.

@Mirjam: We do need to remember that this is a museum. I'm sure it wasn't always this tidy when it was in use.

I think this is a very good choice - to present the interior in BW. It sort of transports us visually back to "the day" when this was all current stuff. Really nicely done, Judy!

@Viewfinder: Thanks, Glenn ... I'm a 'nut' for some of the old stuff and did my share of cooking on an old wood/coal-burning stove in the 60's when living w/Mike's folks while he was building our first home.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

BTW, this appears to be very well-lit. I am curious about how you achieved this - thru flash, processing, or...? - because I'm guessing the interior would not have been really brightly lit.

@Viewfinder: PS: The sun was very bright with a shaft of light that hit the lower left corner and strangely turning it bluish. Processing it, I couldn't remove that cast, to in mono I was able to burn the corner slightly and reduce the problem.

klausZ from Kufstein, Austria

great monochrome processing and compo! very well frame!

@klausZ: Thank you very much.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

That's amazing that it is color on the outside and b&w inside. Just kiddin'! It looks very cozy and functional.

10 Aug 2011 8:27pm

@B. Thomas: Ha, ha ... there was a blue 'flare' in the lower left from the shaft of sun that I could not diffuse, so in B/W it was much better ... big grin!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful details and textures revealed in this B&W compo!

@Steven: Thank you, Steve.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Very good idea to present it in B&W. I like the tonality you managed here, with light and some shading, too, and the texture securing the old touch.

@Japanalia: Thank you.

Sandy Weston from Madison, Maine, United States

Very nice shot Judy. Don't you just love all the fireplace tools?! I like the huge fry pan! We have a couple of the items there ourselves. We have a wood fire brick oven by our fireplace that they used to use a long time ago. My son still uses it in the winter sometimes to cook pizza or pies. It needs a lot of work though, so he found someone recently who know how to restore them.

@Sandy Weston: Yes, I do love these old fireplace tools ... and if I had an old, country place, I'd probably use them. ;D ... PS: had a note from Pam and I don't remember knowing that you were related!
