Macro Monday brings, something metallic on wood (pretty observant eh)! Okay, not “really” a macro shot (as people think a macro shot should look like) but it was taken on my macro lens! 😛
Anyway, Cait and I had the pleasure to head down to North Bend, Washington yesterday to help Robert Antone document the journey of an old Red Ceder being transformed into a Totem Pole whose home will eventually be in Fort Liard, Northwest Territories, Canada. Bob and I have recently met and I am really excited and honoured to be asked to help him document his works, I really can’t tell you (or Bob) just how stoked I am! Obviously more to come on this subject. Enjoy…
So what am I? Highlight between the brackets to reveal the answer. [Okay, I’ll be honest, I had NO idea what it was either, I had to ask Bob! Anyway, it’s a cover (that’s the handle) to an iron stove and yes, I realize not much to do with the Totem!]
He couldnt have found someone more perfect for the job! Im looking forward to the end result and the photo’s through the journey.
Thank you for your wonderful comment Morgan, wow! 😀
I really like the placement and the crispness of the handle in the foreground. The lines from the cover, the wood and the handle all lead the eye right to the point of focus. Very nicely composed.
Thank you very much Mike, means a ton.
That is a very intriguing image and I look forward to seeing the log transformed into a Totem Pole. What a great project to be documenting!
Thank you for stopping by Martina, I am thrilled to be documenting this for Bob. 😀
Your photos are always interesting, especially when you have such a great story behind it. I like the mystery of not knowing what it is, it leaves more to the imagination.
Thank you for the comment Martina, I am trying to work on my narrative skills (I know, I have a loooong way to go!) 😀
Great shot David. I had no idea what it was either, was trying to come up with some sort of carving tool.
Thank you Jim, I had no idea what it was either and I saw the entire thing! lol
Nice DOF to this… great work. Happy Carving 😉
