I picked up my ruler… and saw…

It’s no secret; I LOVE vintage tools. There is something about the beautiful design that went into utilitarian objects from the past. This saw is no exception; the handle is so gorgeous that when I found it at the scrap yard, I just had to take it home with me!

Of course, I used light painting to reveal the full depth and detail.

The ruler is also something I admire, and I remember the days before the laser measuring devices that many of us use today!

  6. Thought that is what the ‘blind man said…as he picked up his hammer and saw!’ A long time word play joke for the family. Always enjoy seeing your work. Headed to Moab for a night time photo conference. Hope all is well.
