Quick shots for Anthony...

I saw a picture quite a while ago that Steve Garro over at Coconino took of a frame that he was holding up at an angle. Looked super cool. So I tried to imitate it.



Lessons learned:
-The kitchen is not a very appealing backdrop.
-My left arm gets very tired after a while. It's a lot harder to hold the frame really still than you might think.
-I suck at taking pictures. Well, that's a lesson learned again, I guess. I already knew that.

So anyway, I did a little mixed-media composition to make up for it. I call it "Bicycle, crappy deck, old shoes, and potting soil."

My interior design friends say that things should be grouped in threes...

I rejoice in having a brotherhood of builders who are as crappy as me at taking pictures! PS hold it by the dropout at arm's lenght. Fillet brazing helps the endurance..... - Garro.

At least you picked the arm without the heroine (I mean "plasma donation") tracks. Nice!
