Shadow Shot Sunday 01-04-09

Visit other shadow shooters via Harriet's site.

This is a hand crocheted winter village scene. I took this photo at night in very low light shining through mini-blinds from the opposite wall; I played with the contrast a bit in PhotoScape, then added a very light sepia tone. Click to enlarge photo.

It's just perfect with that light sepia tint, like a sweet, pinkish, mother-of-pearl. Very calming.

I am in awe that someone could actually crochet an entire village! Crocheting is the one craft that I gladly admit defeat to, so I am REALLY impressed. Lovely, soft shot.

Hey Harriet said...

That's all crochet? Wow! It's a beautiful shot & I really like what you've done with it.

Sorry I missed this last week. I'm glad you linked it up this week to share :)

Terri said...

Thank you all! Harriet (I think that's not really your name but I can't remember it now!) - I think I forgot to link up last week. Not to worry.

There is a lot more to the crocheted village than what shows here - probably a dozen little buildings. It is quite impressive.

A crocheted village? Too cool. You have done the sepia so well that it seems like natural light.
