FOL14 - Week 16

To continue with the month of April's prompt of "Moments", Sally, over at the Studio Sublime, has given us the photo prompt of "A Moment Best Captured in Black and White" for week 16 of the Focus on Life 2014 weekly photography challenge.
 
 
 
 
 
Sally said: "Sometimes, when there is no distraction of color, the image is no longer just a photo but a clean, honest, deeper look at life."
 
So true!
 
Left Photo -Violin Case Handle  /  Right Photo - Violin
 
 
I have a very special violin that is approximately 100 years old.

Possibly a bit older.
 
 
It was my Uncle's and he gave it to my Dad.
 
 
It's one of those things that although lovely in color, I find it most beautiful in Black and White.
 
 
Possibly because it's a
'Moment of History'?
 
 
Hop on over to the other participant's blogs and see what 'moment' they captured in black and white this week!
 
 
Until Next Time,
 
Peace, Love and Antique Moments!
 
Cheers,
~Shel~
