Found Things

By chase
Or should it be ' lost things' ? Maybe that's another image Wink
A few of the things I have picked up from various places, beit the roadside, in an old barn or in a field.
Would love to know what the T shaped thing is, perhaps part of some old plumbing system, it's very heavy and looks like lead.

Really wanted this to be dark with a quite hefty texture, then it's down to the light.

3 frame HDR combined in Photomatix, finished in Photoshop with the texture layer and the usual faffing.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

You can't beat a great piece of grunge, with an suitably grungy texture too.

Things found to make a gritty still life. What I find with your work is that you collect things / items and produce images rather than photgraphing a monument or a sculpture which has been produced by the maker and not the photographer. The T Shaped thing is a drain valve for water systems. The jagged connection on the right is what you attach a hose pipe to with a Jubilee Clip so that the water can be dispersed in a safe place and not get your floor wet. Excellent Janet.

Your processing matching the state of the items and is very thoughtfully done.

I would like it more if there had been just a touch of colour somewhere. One of your red oil cans??

I was thinking a regulator valve for a gas cylinder, but will happily concede that Tom knows better. My thinking was that lead (is it soft as well as heavy?) would avoid sparks.

I shall now look for theose things everywhere.
