Combining two of my favourite hobbies, woodworking and photography Eos Rebel XSi, EFS 17-85 f/4-5.6 at 85mm, f/5.6, 1/20, ISO 1600
When two of the things that we love to do come together in an beautiful way it can be especially gratifying. I really enjoy both photography and woodworking. I am a teacher and I love it but there is something very satisfying about being able to look at what you did and say “there it is, that is what I made.” In teaching you don’t get to do that so I really enjoy making stuff on the weekends. I was surfacing a table that I was making for our back yard and the light through the dusty window caught the shavings in a particular way that was very pleasing to me. I knew that it was too dark in there for hand held photography so I hauled a tripod down into the garage and set up. I really like the way that the light plays in the shavings and then hits the hard metal surface of the block plane.
