The Weekend in Black and White



First Daughter is visiting, and she brought a huge box of chocolates with her.



Before very long the chocolates were disappearing.



That was when we discovered that some of the holders had pretty designs in the bottom.

That made it necessary to empty the tray to find the pictures!

More black and white photos can be found through the links on the Main Page.
Come and join the fun.

this box of sweets was designed for black and white photography! I hope they taste as good as the look and that you had a pleasant visit with your daughter too!

I completely understand! I haven't had Thornton's in far too long...

It's always so much fun to visit and see what you think of next.
I always imagine....everything has already been done and this makes me sad....until I visit! There's still so much to do.
What a fun photo session in which one MUST eat a chocolate before taking the next photo. :-)

Chocolate is my passion ;)
A great shot!

Genie said...

I have never thought about the box having pretty designs under the candy. Next time I buy a box I will have to search. These chocolates and their container made for a wonderful black and white shot. Texture and lighting make is really special. Love the selections this week.

The little patterns are interesting. I like the angle and lighting of the first shot. I have not eaten breakfast and now I'm really hungry :-)

I recognized the name, but not the experience! In
our household it was Cadbury's, or Terry's (for my mother), and Smarties when the sweet ration would
run to it...A very interesting take on a classy wrapping for a delectable looking chocolate rarely seen about
today. Such variation of contrasts in the b/w spectrum.

haha, what a great excuse to empty the box. Bet you ate it. :) I think the box itself was very nice as a monochroem photo.
