Sharpening knife

An environmental portrait of a knife being sharpened on a grinding wheel has been awarded the Photo of the Week accolade this week.

The image, entitled 'sharpening knife' by ePz member tadphaleuday stood out from the crowd, and here's why we thought it deserved to win: 

This is an unusual subject and viewpoint - focusing on a skill that's probably become a bit of a niche in this day and age. The blade is creating sparks as it is sharpened on the wheel, which have been captured as beautiful bokeh artefacts.

A documentary-style image, the rugged textures of the hand steadying the knife and the steely grey background give an industrial feel to the photo. It takes a mundane activity and makes it beautiful, which we love. 

Photo of the Week winners currently get their hands on a 64GB MicroSD card with SD adapter from Samsung. See all the images that have won the accolade in the POTW gallery
