Instruments of torture

By mrswoolybill
Difficult to photograph, I had to lean precariously over a barrier. The public evidently needs to be protected...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

I remember visiting the German WW2 military hospital in Jersey, where the dentistís drill was powered by a bicycle, up on stands, and connected to it by a system of chains and cogs!! I would want the man at the pedals in a yellow jersey.

Thanks guys. Like Alfie, my view of this is somewhat coloured by recent experience...

Terrible, but what i like is the perfect processing which suits the theme and the shallow dof works very well here...

I can feel the fingernails gripping the fake leather padding on the arms of the dentists chair.
Super image Moira.

Reminds me, I think I have a dental appointment coming up soon...🦷😁 At least the only painful bit of going to the dentists these day is the fee! 🥺

I don't think a barrier is necessary, who wants to get close to this? Grin

Thanks to everyone who has called in here today.
And thanks Alfie for the UA!

Scary, fortunately dentists don't use such instruments anymore, maybe😬
I like the shallow depth you used it gives a mystery feeling.

Thanks again folks. I should explain that this is from a display of dentistry equipment as used around 1914. It comes with the presence of a rather over-enthusiastic re-enactor, who will describe the practice in detail.
