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.

    That’s a wonderful mask – I couldn’t have resisted it either. I love the reflection photo.

    Amazingly “simple” and amazingly elegant. I’m envious.

    I see that you could not resist! That mask is beautiful and turning into monochrome is a good idea!
