Thanks to Aileni for hosting Monochrome Weekly. To see other participant's images, or to enter, go to:

Have decided to use the new camera for black and white images and am experimenting with light and toner shades. Sepia is the perfect partner for melancholy images.

This old trunk was found in a church basement almost 50 years ago.

Sepia can do the trick for ancient. I have never used it myself though perhaps a self-portrait would convey my patina of age...:)

In Norway such trunks were called "America"-trunks. a fine specimen.

I would not have guessed it was a trunk, at first glance it looked like the elbow on a suit of armour.

Sylvia said...

What an extraordinary trunk!!!Tell me... What was inside?

Tanja said...

Beautiful, I like the light on top

Elisabeth said...

Sylvia, wish I could say gold, silver or tintypes and old relics, however when found, the trunk contained...absolutely nothing. Now it houses antiques and props, so it finally has a mini-treasure inside. :-)

Beautiful shot, love the details. I love old things in sepia. Mine is in sepia too.

Sepia did give justice to the trunk. Enhancing it's being a relic of the past! Great.

Della said...

Someone said "this is art" and I agree!

Kitty said...

It's really mysterious! So full of age - and sepia does bring out the best in it.

Carly said...

I love the contrast in your photo!
