Scraping The Bottom

Photobucket
It's been a week for going to the dentist again. I had to go and have further fillings, plus an extra one I hadn't bargained for (I love surprises don't you?). My son has had to go twice but luckily he still gets free treatment being a child. I'm definitely in the wrong profession, they've got to be making a fortune.

The reason I mention it is that, barring disasters, I'm off to Focus on Imaging next week and had half planned to treat myself but I don't think that will be possible now. There seems to be a hidden force at work that produces a bill, usually a large one for good measure, just when you thought you could spend some cash. Ho hum, never mind, it'll be good to go have a look anyway.

So I thought I'd have a break from the themed images of the last few days, no textures, no wild post processing, just a straight shot in good old B&W. A boot scraper, it looks old and probably is (although wrought iron has a way of looking old quickly) I wonder what stories it could tell?

Very cool shot Craig, superb B&W and the shadow really adds to this, Superb!!

Ohh yes I can relate to unexpected expenses, I foresee a couple of years for myself before I can splash out on anything for my camera or hobb, but such is life

Cheers

You made me smile with your first sentence. "dentist again" with that sharp spike you got there in the photo, really made me laugh. The pain can be felt through that photo :)

Your shot is great!
I used to never question Dentists..but having no medical and the fact I was told I was to have two root canals (never had any). This guy wasn't even going to charge for the xrays! I checked with another who someone recommended. He told me straight "huh, you don't need any root canal..I've seen teeth much worse than yours"!!His very words. Then..he filled them with a composite and hey that was years ago! I could go on about fillings too!
