Matt's Spinner 52: #1, Metal

I got "Metal" when I spun the wheel.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...and is expected to be so for the rest of the week. So I'll stay inside.

This is the engine from our son's Lionel train set which is about 50 years old or so, given to him by an aunt after her son died while learning to fly in a one-engine plane. Our son has left it at our house; the grandson now plays with it when they come. Before packing it away for another year, I decided this might do for this week's assignment. Matt

Are you starting another 52 in the middle of your 52? You inspire me!

Metal should be an easy one, but the processing on this is unreal. I love it! S-

Excellent image Matt, especially the processing, a great idea !!!

The image of your son's Lionel train set is a reminder, to me, that I still have mine thats about 55 years old and still works.

awesome job - the only reason it doesn't look real is the track - you could put a life size track under it, but you might lose part of the magic if you did that.

Thanks, Dave. The battery pack for this one went caput, so a new one is on the Christmas list for next year. Matt

Thanks, Piet. I wanted to crop it to the cow catcher but it didn't look right. So I left it. I don't know enough to substitute real tracks or erase the middle track. Matt

Matt's Spinner 52: #2, Dawn's Light

A selfie with what was left of dawn's early light by the time I was mobile.

I am a few weeks behind, but I have the photos and will post soon.

I like this a lot, Matt! So much left to our imaginations + just a cool study of shadows and lines.

Cool image Matt! And great processing choice for the old Lionel. I’m so glad you’re pressing on to keep up with your projects. Time invested in learning is always a good thing, though.

I don’t know that I could add in another track either, but it might be tempting. The new PS tool for extracting things is supposed to be great, maybe we oughta give it a try...
