Waterfall Valances

I hung my new valances. I like them! :)


I had some trouble photographing them. My camera has an autofocus feature - you point the camera toward a thing, press the autofocus, and when the camera has focused on the thing, it gives a little green light. Unfortunately, it does not always recognize a black thing as a thing.

I pointed my camera at the valances, pressed the autofocus... and got a confused beep and a little yellow question mark.

I tried again and got the same thing. It's like the camera was looking for something, but only saw black and was all "I got nothing for you."

Finally, I had to take a wider shot and focus on the lamp next to the window. So the valances are blurry.

  1. Blurry or not, they look amazing anyways ♥
    And yeah, I know that just too well, when the camera doesn´t want to cooperate, especially with black things :D

      Someone needs to make a camera with a "Goth" setting so we can all get good pictures of our black things. ;)

  2. The Valances have worked out amazing they are very effective in creating a Victorian boudoir.

  3. Black velvet has a habit of being a light sucker, so that may be the problem the camera was having.

    1. So true! I'm pretty sure cosmic black holes are made of velvet. ;) The valances are sort of a faux silk fabric, though they look like velvet in the first picture and satin in the second picture.

  7. Sounds like they didn't have goths in mind while manufacturing your camera! Love what you've done with the curtains.
