Still Life with Shovel II

 

In a previous post I showed a different view of this shovel, taken with a medium format camera in portrait mode, shot in colour and converted to black and white.

But at the same time, I pulled this tiny camera from my pocket and took a shot on 35 mm black and white film as well.

As mentioned before, this is in the Mews, around back at Government House in Victoria.

    • I agree Sherry – the wall is a great backdrop for the shovel. When I look at that wall it reminds me of endless hours drawing masonry walls to scale on archaeological excavations in London. A lot of old walls came out of our digs there. Fortunately I usually worked with someone(s) that liked to draw the walls, and had the patience for the job.

    • Hi Mario – I agree about the brickwork. The first was not a very good exposure, one reason I converted to black and white where I thought I would have a better chance of correcting it.
