I remember how my father’s oil cans collected dust in the cellar. Some of those in the photo look much the same as I remember them.

This is the same collection I shared a photo of earlier, but from a slightly different angle. I like how the light catches each one in a different way.

Love the grungy look of the oil cans.

I like the processing here. 🙂

Thank you, Chillbrook. The low light contributed somewhat to the graininess. 🙂

As usual, you’ve turned the most ordinary of items and turned them into artwork on film.

Thank you, Pam. There is something fascinating to me about all of the different shapes we give to ordinary things.

This is lovely, really. I like the tones and the light a lot.

The tones got me with this one, too… the light was striking the cans just so. The composition is a bit off (the surface was crooked…), but we can’t have it all sometimes. 🙂 Also, there are times when I can’t get near enough to my subjects to satisfy my eye, but then afterwards I realize my own hunger for a close-up has compromised the balance of the shot. …

Me too. We are detail eyes, aren’t we? The composition looks really good to me, but then I am a closeup freak too! 🙂

Excellent. I like that I’m not the only freak. 🙂

very nice shot, I love old working gear, reminds me of my former boss who collected and used old stuff 😀
September 2, 2012 at 10:46 pm
Thanks! I can see why people would collect this old stuff: it’s so interesting to look at! The shapes, patina, variety… wonderful!

Really like these. The blue tones really give it an alternative process feel that works very effectively with the subject. It resembles Cyanotypes.

Nice historic/antique vibe to this.
