This table belonged to Queen Marie of Romania. She was a great friend of Sam Hill, the man who built Maryhill.

Beautiful lighting on this! Excellent shot!
Wow! Maryhill Museum! I haven't been there in...uh...well, a very long time. I remember they had some really cool chess sets there. It always seemed odd to me, this museum with so many nice displays, yet situated "in the middle of nowhere." Maybe it was just my teenage perception of things at the time.... Anyway, cool shot!

Stunning! What a shot. What light and colors and I agree...is this elegant or WHAT? I happen to know a few people with slightly different ideas about Romania and anything Romanian, but considering a particular thread of history it's understandable, though also...um...laughably tragic, if such a concept can exist. But all of that notwithstanding, this is a brilliant, wonderful photographic mood. I especially love the reflected window and that refreshing, surprising touch of blue.

I wonder if he is the same Sam from "What the Sam Hill" fame. Nice installation and excellent capture. It looks like everything is ready for afternoon tea. I looked in on your Blender images. As my Polish grandmother would have said, "You got potentials, kid."

Bold and brassy IMHO,
elegant? - I don't know - hardly! ...
but so very interesting and totally fascinating, with all those amazing details, something you would almost find in a 'Kloster' (Monastery), so spartan in design.
It reminds me of the journey, when I visited the Teutonic Castle in Marlbork, Poland in 1999! (it used to be called the Marienburg in East Prussia, Germany)
What is there not to like? ;P
