Marvelous nostalgic capture. I really like the way you used the side light here.

You just have to love that old stove! I like the vintage fee and the sepia tones are perfect.

@Franz: These old behemoths are still standing, aren't they. Built to last!!

Love your use of sepia here. I love those old stoves.

@Bettina: Thanks, Bettina. This one was quite large, too. It must have heated that kitchen to the max. No wonder the old time properties often had summer kitchens.

Again, you have taken the right approach - the toning fits perfect.

@Ronnie 2¢: Oh, good! After awhile one is not quite sure what to do with an image. For example, the roaster is actually a turquoise blue enamel. Should I show that or go monotone... So I chose the mono, because the stove is such a huge black presence. And the linoleum color is seen in other pictures.

Are you kidding? I can hardly use a microwave! LOL

@B. Thomas: LOL!!!! You could sit and drink tea and converse while the cook does the cooking! :)

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

As Ronnie wrote, the monotone works well here. Good choice. It allows the lovely old stove to stand out. I would like a summer kitchen! Why did we do away with them?

@Anita: Thanks, Anita! I suppose modern living has less need for summer kitchens. And yet...!

A beautiful shot of this great old stove.

@Steve Rice: Thanks, Steve. I have never cooked on one, but love the look of them.
