With the leaves off the trees now, my apartment is flooded with morning light. My little 'ol camera has a hard time adjusting for the small areas of brightness next to the darker shadows, but I think these photos are fairly representative. The lighting changes by the second; what light is shining directly on a certain piece is usually gone by the time I fire up the camera. As usual, dust is everywhere. I'll be doing my "seasonal" dusting before the end of the year however!
Not so much visible dust, but the harshness of the morning light is really striking in this photo. The clutter of my overlapping collections is readily apparent as well. I really liked the way the sun was hitting that 1940s color portrait.
Gratuitous Clutter Photo:
My second floor central hallway has lots of vintage colors in it, although no direct light hits it. The red and yellow combination I like so much on the Prince Albert can is present in these 1920s game boxes: Milton Bradley's Game of India and Bingo. Handmade antique boat toys rest on the top of each game box. An early 1950s Hummel "baby face" is on the left, and a late 19th century oil painting of Stony Creek harbor is hanging on the right. A brass candelabra given to me by Hoohoo on my sixth birthday is in the center. The plan was for me to become a young Liberace, lol, as I had been playing piano for a couple of year already by that young age. The best laid plans...
