Old Book

  1. This is really lovely Sue, love the simplicity of it. 🙂

  2. Wonderful! Now…the black and white version.

  3. I have to say that the monochrome nature of the shot renders B+W superfluous on this occasion.
    This photo is simply stunning Sue. Enough said.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      I tend to agree re the mono nature of the shot rendering B&W superfluous….but I might have a dabble in Silver Efex! Thanks for your effulgent praise, Pete 🙂

  4. Oh I just love old books and what a gorgeous image! Love the tones and the flowers are a perfect touch!

      Thank you, Susan! I know you love old books – I was very inspired by a post you did a while ago! As for the flowers, I just felt it needed a little something extra… 🙂

  5. Stunning image, Sue. I can almost smell that distinctive old-book ‘almondy’ scent.

  6. This is beautiful as is (re change to black and white comments). The light is wonderful, as is the simplicity.

  7. No matter how many times we open a book, there will always be a moving message waiting for us.

  8. This photo really stirs the imagination. Who held it? What was their state of mind? Did it make a difference to their life? How come you found it in a suitcase? Why was it kept? The background you’ve chosen to photograph it on and the daisies have now become part of its story. Not black and white: its colours are beautifully mellow and aged, and there is a rich gleam from the wood that b&w would eradicate I reckon.

    Wow. What solemnity. That book has a real sense of presence,

  10. much loved as well, by the looks.

  11. Somehow this evokes the Day of Rest – and is that the Bible you referred to you in your previous post?

  12. It looks even better closed 😉 Gorgeous shot, Sue!

  13. What a beautiful photo! 🙂 Old books are treasures! Too bad all the modern ones will not hold up like that…
