Six Word Saturday: A different look to that image

Does this one work better now? Monochrome gives a sense of age…..

linked to Six Word Saturday here


  1. The old camera lends itself to an image that might have been contemporary when we were still using them.
    Nice work, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    very well put together vignette Sue – am intrigued by the book too

    • Sue

      Many thanks, Laura! Chatwin was an inveterate traveller, and he had a keen eye for a striking, usually colourful image plus a gift for incisive, witty prose.

  3. I second Laura’s comment, Sue. I like the references to photography within the photograph; the presence of the Chatwin book also suggests we might just open it and see more photos…

  4. I don’t know, Sue, but I do think it’s good that playing with photography brings you such pleasure. I’m not familiar with Chatwin’s work either, but then, my education is sadly lacking. Happy Saturday, hon! 🙂 🙂

      I came across Chatwin from a book I read years ago…I love that reading one book can lead us to so many others…. Happy Saturday to you, Jo!

  5. I liked it before but yes, I like it even better now. The Chatwin book must be a delight, he was quite a character.

    I have put it on my wishlist – thanks for sharing p.s. that front cover is apparently his wife’s fave photo and your B&W takes nothing away from it

  7. I like the sharpness in this one. I picked up a secondhand copy of the book for a friend recently for next to nothing from abebooks.

  8. A story telling composition.

  9. I like the idea that it could be taken on the beach, the tablecloth or whatever the items are sitting on looks like sand. I know you wouldn’t put a camera down on to sand, but it just looks like you are ready to take some lovely seascapes 🙂 Lynne

  10. Yes, I like it in monochrome – very nice indeed. I still haven’t read any Chatwin. His “In Patagonia” is a classic travel book but it is still sitting on my shelves. The photo notebooks look appealing – and good quality second hand versions aren’t cheap.
