The 'tools of the trade' if you are talented at braiding hair!
There has been a fashion over the last few years of adding different coloured threads and beads to girls hair.
This was a stall on the quayside in Padstow.The lady whose stall it was, was obviously a little bit suspicious of me wanting to take a shot of her colourful threads.
The rectangle in the centre is simply a mirror for customers to view the finished decoration.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean.

We are similar today with our theme images. You show an extensive range of colours for this braiding of hair. So neatly packed as well within its own wooden case, perfect choice for theme day.

I cant believe how cold it was this morning.....Brass Monkeys and all that.
Have a peaceful Easter.

stv ;o))

As he observed, an impressive choice of a photo posted by Steve Fry. That's good for us to analyze the differences of vision, focus and finish.
Great entry.
Have a good Easter.

Hi,an excellent choice,it is great still-life also.Friendly regards,Otto.

I've women's hair with different colors but braided with threads? This is very contribution to Friday's theme. I like the lighting and it has good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Ciao Jean, lovely composition full of colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, Happy Easter, ciao Silvio

Hi Jean

A splendid entry in the Fridays colours theme with plenty of colour evident here. Good sharpness and a soft, diffused light. Superb shadow detail at the back. Not much you could do about the rectangulsar mirror but in a way it adds a focal point. The scissors and yarn add interesting elements to the composition. Tfs!

Bonjour Jean
As it seems the best way to show all the colours is to shoot clothes or threds to make them.But here the pearls are a plus
well done
Bonne semaine
