Tools - we all have at least one in the home, be it a screwdriver, hammer or chainsaw - even a pair of scissors can be classified as a tool.
Make your image abstract, artistic or mysterious, just not bog-standard, straight forward, run of the mill, or everyday. Use your imagination! And as many brain cells as it takes...Tongue
Get close and personal, in their face, as it were and amaze me with your stunning efforts!

Well why are you still sitting there? Get on with it!

Just the usual reminder that now we have said au revoir to the macro challenge, it is time to get your tools out and photograph them...

@Eddie: just behave yourself, lad!

Eddie has pointed out to me that my Alzheimer light has struck once again and has reminded me that this IS the macro challenge, not the b&w oneBlushBlushBlush

I'm covering myself and uploading a macro B&W.....

Now this is some serious valve key.

Just a few hours to go to the deadline, and plenty of time to be considered for the prize of the week (not from Norwich, for those old enough to remember a certain tv show...)

Adjustable Wrench

I'm uploading a macro B&W as well, though not to cover myself but there was virtually no colour in the scene anyway so it was better to discard it.

It was a good opportunity to combine challenges so multiple exposure on an adjustable wrench yields this result. Smile

Small screwdrivers that I use to take apart, and sometimes mend, my old cameras and lenses. The tip of this one is 0.9mm.

Taken with an old Flektogon 35mm which I picked up for a song recently as it was seized up. Now OK, and I'm amazed at its close-focus capability. This was done with no tubes etc. and wasn't at its closest focus.
