Photographic opportunities are everywhere…


Photographic opportunities are everywhere.

Last week, our friend Joe Schober was painting our bedroom for us, and as I walked by his work table, I was struck by the beauty of the protective canvas on which he had placed his tools. Joe told me that the canvas has been used for covering his work table for the last 2 or 3 decades! I was also drawn to the tools themselves; a simple paint can and a blow torch. I decided to do a still life which emphasized the canvas. One of the things I love about old tools is that they speak to me about their years of use and the people who used them. Tools are for most people a means to an end, but I find that they tell a wonderful story.
