  2. This is a beautiful rendition in monochrome, and a rare object to see. Thank you, Sue. Have a great Sunday!

  3. Doesn’t look as though it would be much use now! I actually prefer the non-processed version, already monotone, and the cloth behind it looks similar to one my mother had (and I still do) which makes me wonder if my dad picked it up in Italy during the war.

  4. Ah, and a really lovely submission for the Traces of the Past too :D. You made me smile, Sue. Cheers!

  6. I like being able to see the traces of the (peacock?) blue in the first photo.
    It’s a nice old relic, and I am wondering if it might still work, after a good oiling!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. I like both versions. That net curtain is a great backdrop.

  8. I like the Singer and the edited version seems to really match the patina… 🙂

  9. My volte is for the black and white version.

  10. I was a rubbish seamstress back in those days, Sue! Still am but I do love the look of those old machines. 🙂

  11. They are precious, even if they don’t work anymore. Both look very nice and so does the curtain.

  12. Amy

    Well done! Such a cool capture, Sue!

  13. What a great find. I do slightly prefer the color though. I tend to notice the leaf design a bit more in color.

  14. I see what Pete means about the blue, and what a lovely find.

  15. The sepia wins for me! Lovely shots Sue – they really capture the era of hand-operated sewing machines (when I was at uni, hiring the college sewing machine was the first task immediately after exams so that we had some new summer wear for our travels!)

  16. I like both versions! Tried to pick a favorite between the two and just couldn’t.

  17. they are both great but I like the mono best!!
