The Arts And Crafts Of War

Uploaded: March 28, 2005


f/4.5 at 1/400 of a sec. 56mm with18-70mm lense. Shot this image at Fort Howard Park in Maryland and didn't think to much about it until I started to edit it in Photoshop and began to relize just how complex and percise this wheel was from a WWI gun. Hence the title

Tony, thank you for the huge compliment! :-) I was like you, I tried all kinds of other crafts and never felt satisfied. My whole family are photographers and I wanted to be different! A friend saw some photos I shot and showed them to the owner of two galleries, who then asked me to make photo cards for was a big success and then I opened my own gallery. I finally found something I enjoyed that let me explore the world with new eyes! I have never looked at anything the same since then! This wheel is a thing of beauty. All hand made, just to think of all the work that went into ot in those days is inspiring! Beautiful shot Tony! Just keep on shooting. As my brother told me. "As soon as you sell a picture, you can call yourself a professional " :-) #314904
