The Mask

For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

At the Avondale Sunday Markets, Ryan Callanan sells a large range of sunglasses and his stand is well equipped with mirrors. But in amongst the spectacles, he also had a couple of masks, laser-cut in stainless steel to his own design, inspired by Maori patterns. We could not resist.

At home, when the shafts of the late-afternoon sun crossed our white breakfast table, we suddenly saw two masks.

  5. Thank you for commenting on my blog.
    I see that you could not resist! That mask is beautiful and turning into monochrome is a good idea!
