Photo Hunters~ Metal

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY back in April, I spent some time wandering around my property, playing with my macro lens. I snapped these two shots of METAL nails in our deck railing. The deck was made nearly 30 years ago, and I just fell in love with how the macro lens accentuated the appearance of the weathered wood, and old METAL.

These two photos quickly became a few of my favorites. The narrow focus gives them so much character. I am glad to finally taken the time to share them.
Have a great weekend! I look forward to seeing lots of METAL on my photo hunt!

Corey, you are the only person I know who can make metal nails look beautiful. You are so talented (and it's not just the camera, it's the person behind the lens). When I take photos of nails, they look like ....um....nails. When you take a photo you make it look like a work of art.
