A different life? Quite a stretch …
Munching at the Market
framing of subtleties
Stuff I’ve seen when I was a child. Amazing that they are still there today. Reliable stuff. And it provides jobs.
Very reliable stuff which is needed in places where things do not get thrown out but fixed. My grandpa used to have a ‘machine’ similar to his…if I recall correctly.
Beautiful gesture and focused expression. I like the light creating a frame around him.
Maybe the “goggles apparition” is due to a wrong screen setting ?
Me, too 🙂 Oh, Ms. Ambassador. You make me laugh.
Canary, I like the subject but I’m having a difficult time with how deep shadowing is. It is hard to read the grinders face under his hat. Or are they goggles?
I see your point, Tim. However, the sunlight was extremely bright that day – and, hence, the shadowing quite deep. In this instance, I didn’t care so much about the face of the grinder but rather the effects of light and shadows in the image. And, no, no goggles.
What a brilliant photo. It made me homesick too.
Thanks so much, Tish! I hope it made you homesick in a good and nostalgic kind of way…
