My photograph is in an Etsy Treasury!

My black and white photograph of the covered bridge in Cedarburg Wisconsin was featured in this treasury on Etsy today.



A Treasury on Etsy is a mini exhibit or selection of 12 different items from different artists that is put together by a fellow Etsian - the "curator". Anyone with an Etsy account can be a curator. The curator chooses the theme of their treasury, for example colors, animal, symbol, flowers, seasons. They title the treasury, and then select the objects. I believe the objects have to come from 12 different artists.

Many of these guest curators have a fabulous eye for selecting items that go together for their chosen theme. One thing I really love about this black and white treasury is that it makes me very aware of textures. I always feel black and white photography reveals emotions in photograph. In this treasury, I saw how much texture the black and white reveals.

I am always honored to find out one of my artworks is in a treasury. When I saw that I was in this treasury, I decided that I would figure out how to add this to my blog. Treasuries expire, but the screen shot of them doesn't. Thank You to bstudio, the curator who included my covered bridge photograph in her treasury.

This is a beautiful photo! Have you ever heard of Boscabel? My gret-great grandfather who died in the Civil War was from that area. I have wanted to visit Wisconsin and dig into my geneology. That beautiful bridge in your photo just beckons me to come explore! Thanks for sharing!

Wow - the photography here (and in your store) is beautiful. I, too am drawn to black & white but I especially enjoy the perspective in the bridge photo...

GREAT photo! We're just a couple of miles from the other covered bridge in Wisconsin. (I believe there are only two in the state.) It's in Little Hope - right next to Rural - at the Red Mill. It's a magnet for photographers and artists. Last year I met a man who came all the way from Russia to paint the mill and the bridge and the chapel. Come visit us sometime - you'll love it here!

BTW - You won the giveaway on my blog!! Yay! Please send me your address so I can send the goodies off to you!
