Something to Get my Teeth Into

By woolybill1
Another from the ruined 19th-century mill in Jesmond Dene, Newcastle.

My view in both yesterday's and today's images was severely constrained by the stout iron fence through whose posts I had to shoot.

So lovely a title for this great shot, you managed to get just enough amount of blur at the background. What I said for the previous upload is also relevant for this compo which I like a lot.

Nothing quite so annoying as iron rail constraints Bill. You did well in both with your angles despite the problems.


hope you retrieved them before leaving?

Had a few arguments in the past myself Bill,with iron fencing.I find my G11 very handy for putting through the fence and composing the shot on the screen.I just have to make sure I do not drop the thing !!
(note to self---I must get a wrist strap !!)

A good mono image with nice non-uniform lines compared with the teeth of the gear.

Looks like the edge of some bloody great maw, just waiting for you to fall into it ....... At the same time gentle in its way, with beautiful toning.

Coo, a bevel gear! In the nineteenth century, and before, a lot of gears, particularly larger ones, were cast complete, i.e. no machining of the gear form (involute) after casting. Bevel gears of this size almost certainly were produced in that way, I have never even heard of a Gleeson machine to produce one that large. Sorry for the boring stuff, have a well deserved vote.

I like this very much Bill, good view point and dof. And it just had to be mono Smile
