Lost Love

By chase
I raided my next door but one neighbours' barn yesterday, he has all manner of great stuff, I could have been in there for hours Wink
I borrowed a big circular saw disc, amongst a couple of other things.

Taken in reduced daylight camera leftish.
A 5 frame HDR, each 1 stop apart, combined in Lightroom and finished in Photomessaboutshop.

Where this idea came from, goodness knows !

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay safe, be good and smile.
Don't follow the aisle arrows in Tesco, they aren't there Wink

I can remember scales being like this! Can't think why you'd want to weigh a skull, but it makes for a great still-life, Janet 😃👍

I trust the skull isn't that of the next door but one neighbour, who stumbled upon you raiding his barn?Wink

Great set up, Dave.

A beautiful still life, artists used to include a skull in old portraits as a reminder that life is short.

Soon as I seen the human head skeleton, I thought of you. An empty head, doesn't weigh much. Creepy, fun and VERY imaginative. Interesting stuff we may be seeing soon I suspect.
