I messed around with this shot I took of our coffee table after our New Year's party with friends, added film grain and removed the color hoping to give it a feel of nostalgia.

I only post images as and when I can - it may be once a week, or once a year. Just check back occasionally and maybe I'll have something new!

My first Color Spotlight - "Roll On".

You can find my husband Jason's photoblog at Shutter Fodder. Check it out!

I think you've succeeded in your task, although looking up from this I would not be surprised to see someone holding their head because of their hangover ! Terrific image Karen.
