    My grandfather passed away a few weeks ago. He was 103 yrs. old and this was his drill.
    Very independent, he lived alone in his house until last fall.

    103 :cokespit:

    I like the whole series Jon. The b/w works great with the metal. Gives a good industrial feel.

    ....and if that drill could talk....:) I'm thinking of all the things he did with it, all those years he had it. He sounds like a wonderful old man, Jon! Sorry for your loss. :hug::

    This series does him proud. :thumbup: Love that top image, especially.

    awesome series Jon, regards to you and your family, and I bet that drill smells awesome when its running,. I had one just like it when my uncle pasted, and I ran it just for the smell.

    yeh raymond I jus fired it up and it totally has a distinctive 'old shop' odour...reminds me of the smell of my grandpa's garage which was always a wondrous place when I was growing up.
    Threw some wicked sparks too! may try to catch those on camera later :D
    thanks for the comment.

    That is a cool age to reach! 103 and living independently up until only a few months before the end of this long life was reached. Wow.

    Photographing this drill in the way you did gives your grandfather some great additional honour. I like the whole idea behind it.

    And of this entire series the 2nd photo is my favourite. It is so nicely abstract and pleasing in it being a circle.
