As I mentioned yesterday, the first time that I saw these I innocently believed that I was the first photographer ever to spot their potential. I have since then watched so many others do the same.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

A very well observed composition, great use of depth of field. The mono processing adding to the grotty, greasy mechanical setting.

Thanks again folks. I have been busy photographing Daffy Duck sniffing flowers. That will appear on Sunday, I think...
The light was special that day. But the cobwebs get better with every visit!

Light, shapes, textures - I would dearly have liked to be there to photograph this.

When I saw the image I also wished I could get out my oils and paint it - fine edges of strong highlights, reflected cool light on the shadow side - you know what I'm saying Smile

Those webs catching the light make it extra special - not of a place others have come to photograph, but a found still life in an abandoned place, where the sun shines in through a window catching the dust motes in it's rays.

Cobwebs aside for a moment, this photo takes me back a bit.
This is the sort of can (but larger) i had to take to the local bicycle shop about fifty years ago for our 'Aladdin'paraffin heater.
Five gallons, and it cost less than a pound.

Nice still life. I like the composition and the light. It also reminds me a lot of the still life settings an art teacher would make his students draw... This would convert very well into charcoal. Wink
