Saw Sharper!

with 10 comments

I always wanted to shoot my neighbor doing saw sharpening, just this morning i was out having coffee by the gate when a carpenter stopped by and dropped his gear for sharpening. As my neighbor getting ready, I hurried up to get my camera. I couldn’t get something I wanted on his facial emotions maybe because he is not comfortable in front of the camera that is why I focus on his hands doing working hands art

my audience during the shoot!

  2. That was terrific! I love to watch craftsmen work and these days people like your saw sharpener neighbour are becoming rare – their work needs to be understood in our disposable societies. Great post.

  5. It’s nice to see someone concentrated and passionate about his or her work. But I am guessing you are not in Nashville anymore?
