Gages


no images were found

Here is another shot from the Pacific Mill Machine Shop.

I made a switch to my 50mm f1.4 for the last couple of shots that day to try to narrow my view and mix it up a bit. The details in the the room, sort of demanded it. This shelf of assorted gages was peeking out of a cabinet at me, begging to be shot. I did what I had to do.

On another note:
I had a good weekend of photography. I woke up Saturday to gray skies, snow flurries and frigidly cold temperatures. The perfect conditions to work on Round 2 of my Off Season series.

I drove the 25 minutes to Salisbury Beach, cruised the streets, scouted out my first target, popped the trunk and … no camera. I left it at home.
Undeterred, I hopped back into the car, drove home and turned right back around. While its an hour of my life I can’t get back, it was well worth the extra effort.

I spent a good deal of time yesterday, processing the images. I’m pretty happy.

You’ll start seeing the results within the next couple of weeks.

  1. Bob, I love all your Pacific Mill series and they keep on coming!

    I take my hat off to you for turning round and going back again, must have taken quite some discipline.

  2. Love the ancient feel to this photo…great processing. You’re dedicated to go all the way back home to grab the gear. Looking forward to the next installment of the series!

  3. This is a sweet shot. It’s very soft and easy on the eyes. I’m loving this series and can’t wait to see more from it! Keep it up, Bob!

  4. Psyched for more Off-Season! Today’s image is awesome, I agree with Heath, it feels very turn of the century. Great DOF and processing!

  5. I love it when a photographer who is already a master of technique and has a great eye for images is able to see and isolate small found objects like this. This is an image that in its seeming simplicity is rich in its potential to trigger the imagination.

    Guys, I really appreciate the kind words.
    Toad One more image form this place is hitting tomorrow. I hope to go back later this week for another quick shoot. There much detail in the place.

  7. nice soft image – the 50 really did some good here.
    Bet you wont forget the camera again. I’ve not yet made that mistake but I have been out with a friend for some high up night work and he forgot the tripod sho for his camera – he wasnt best impressed!
