JANUARY - 2014 - OLD TOOLS

Postby odklizec » Thu Jan 09, 2014 9:16 am

Thank you all who participated in the December contest (you may vote here). It's about the time to start first in new year contest! ;)

Theme:
The theme for this month, selected by previous month winner, Habeascorpus, is "OLD TOOLS"!

Rules:
You must post one photo right in reply to this post. Please, do not link them from other sites! Use the "Upload Attachment" instead.
The photo must be taken with Ricoh camera!
The max size of the photo is limited to 1200x900 and must contain EXIF!
Please guys, make sure your photo contains EXIF! Entries without EXIF will be disqualified! Tip for Lightroom/Elements users, make sure the "limit file size" option is disabled during export! And one more thing. Photos linked from external sources are displayed without EXIF!
Ricoh film camera entries (without EXIF) are allowed, but only from people with previous forum activity and history (some previously posted Ricoh analog photos).

----------------------------------------------------------

Also this time, there will be some really interesting HW prizes (big thanks to our sponsors Ricoh and Alpha Digital!). Of course, there will be also the usual set of SW prizes from Mediachance and Pixelmator!

The winner will have an option to pick either the HW or SW prize. Winner will also have an option to pick anything from the below listed prizes (just one of them of course;) ).

In addition, the winner will be honored to suggest a contest theme for next month!

Good luck everyone!

PS: Please folks, give your photos a reasonable title! The best would be to enter the title in the "File Comment" box along with your uploaded photo. At the end of each month I'm hunting for the titles over your posts and sometime I have no other option than to use "unnamed", which is somewhat silly title ;)

OK, let me start.
This is a photo taken with the GXR + A12 28mm unit, equiped with Kenko close-up filters.
The "Old tool" is not supposed to be my hand (although...), but the Graphoplex slide rule !

These old tools were for sale in a dealers in Horncastle, Lincolnshire, England. The hand drill nearest the camera was in perfect working order so I couldn't resist it at £3 (it will be used for wood working). Taken for the January competition and not from archive.

'Fire Starters'.

These are all fire irons once used to start fires as when and where desired. A flint and tinder for fuel was also required though! The colourful model at the back of the group is relatively modern example from Tibet, the others are typical of European designs from past centuries. I actually saw one such device in action in Crete in the autumn, the lady who was demonstrating the right technique to us saying that it had belonged to her grandparents who presumably were still using this method for starting fires around the start of the 20th Century.
I wonder how many cigarettes one would smoke a day if one had to rely on using these, in all weathers, to get the tip to glow...:-)
