SCREENS

To everyone's delight, Thematic Photography has returned, with the subject of SCREENS.

Now there are screens and screens, and I'm sure Carmi and others will think of all the screens we use every day - Phone, tablet, laptop, home PC, TV, and I'm sure there are more.   So I took photos of Screens - on my screen!   Just to be different!




The two above are just a tiny selection of the loads I found on Pinterest.




 But two of my favourites are the Italian painted leather one above, and the Japanese one below.   I reckon in the draughty houses of years past, a screen was a vital necessity if you didn't want a nasty cold wind down your back!   Even in my childhood home, where we had no central heating , we could have done with a screen or two, as each time the living room door was opened, an icy blast came in!!    Oh, the chilblains I suffered from!



To see more screens, go to Carmi ans see what others have come up with.   And post your own!

Interesting post. I once had a screen (3 panel) covered in burlap. Not as pretty as yours!!

I love Asian silk screens. They are stunning!

Those kinds of screens are real works of art. I could use one to hide my messy desk.

I never thought of tackling the challenge this way so missed the chance to be as inventive as you with these different screens on screen.

Yes, it's great that Carmi has brought us all together again! I really like your interesting and fun screen shots and especially the last one. I had wanted to explore all the meanings for screen but I ran out of time!
