Good evening everyone,

Once again I've been rummaging round to find some objects of interest to photograph - I thought this looked rather reminiscent of a Darlek when I had a look on the big screen, I thought I might let you know what it is but then I decided I would leave you to have a ponder!

Many thanks for your kind comments on my previous uploads - as ever they are very much appreciated.
Best Wishes - Heather

I thought it was a fishing reel at first in thumbnail, but I agree with others that it looks like a lamp - a very nicely captured one too Grin

like this Heather , metal looks very cool , looks old but in good nik , dof makes the whole image very interesting ,as far as what it is would only be guessing a lamp off the title , in focus bit must be the top , so yes i,m going for oil filled lantern Smile
