    B&W from the workshop

    I was out at the workshop building today, waiting for the tractor battery to charge, and thought I would share a few shots. The workshop is so full of interesting stuff (junk according to my wife) that I see different things almost every time I am out there.

    C&C appreciated.

    this is a 6-sided screw cabinet that Dad refinished a couple years ago

    Assorted stuff on the wall. This is typical of the entire building.

    I could spend forever photographing the details of your workshop. You are so lucky to have such a treasure trove of photographic morsels.

    I like #5 better than #4 but I would clone to remove the text at the bottom that has only the upper half displayed.

    All of them are very nice conversions except the first one doesn't work for me. Your father did such a nice job of refinishing the wood that I want it to stand out the most. Currently, the handles stand out the most. Try using a different color filter for making that conversion so the results are darker text and etching. Or simply darken them.

    That looks like a very interesting workshop Jon. Definitely NOT JUNK. The lighting looks good to me and B&W is the way to go for these for sure. You've got a mean collection of pipe wrenches !

    Great shots Jon! Looks like a workshop that any collector would love...keep shooting and share some more!

    If you are so inclined it looks like it would be a great setting to try out some HDR shots (I'm not a huge fan of the over the top stuff but it can be used effectively at times as I think Kevin showed us in some recent posts).

    Interesting series Jon. Only those that do not appreciate what the items are and their use would call them junk

    Would love to see some close ups of the screw cabinet.

    Thanks Mike, and this is just scratching the surface of one room. I think this will be a long term project.

    Thanks Shane. Funny, I had the same thought of HDR shots. I think I will have to look into that. Don't worry, this is only a very small portion of whats in this building...there will surely be more to come.
