So I removed the USVI tray from the frame and took the shot. This is in fact a colour shot that is monochrome. Choices I made in terms of items for my kitchen. My apartment In Brooklyn had a kitchen that had a black and white theme so I purchased items that maintained the black and white theme including the silver canisters. It had now all blended into the renovated apartment that is 16P. I added to the back and white theme with the War Horse drink bottle used regularly as a rolling pin and the Joseph Joseph black draining board.
