Monochrome Madness – K

Leanne Cole runs an open Monochrome event each week and each month she chooses a theme. This time her daughter Klara suggested knives. Leanne widened this out to anything beginning with ‘K’. Other suggested subjects for the letter ‘K’: kite, kitchen, kick, kiss, kitten ……… any others?

But I had already thought of these knives as I love the way the light catches the twisty handles.

But which photograph should I submit? I think I like this second one best where the knives look suspended,

On one of our girlie shopping trips before my daughter was married we spied this cutlery glinting in a shop window. We both love anything that sparkles, so I bought her a canteen of this design for her wedding present, and then bought a canteen for myself as well. (I miss those girlie days! We’ll have to wait till her children are older before we can revive them)

So – which photo do I choose…….

…..   I have looked at them too long …..

Odd one out

……  and like saying the same word over and over again, when it begins to lose meaning and sounds daft, I can’t make my mind up.

HELP! Which one do you think I should enter into this month’s Monochrome Madness?

Here is a link to Leanne’s page with all the other fabulously creative entries.

Thanks to Rainbow Junkie for introducing me to this brilliant photography blog.

  3. I think the first one as I like the way the blades glint in the light, and also the dark shadows right at the bottom.
    I also like the ‘top and tail’ pic, Those knives are really lovely, and what a wonderful story of how you came about them, shopping with your daughter 🙂

  4. I like the top one best as you really get the blades catching the light, especially the one on the right and I like the blobby shadows you get at the end of the handles. This one also has the best contrast.
