With This Ring...

Postby Bob's Photography » Tue Jun 09, 2015 2:10 pm

This is not really a macro, but it is a close-up and I wasn't sure where else to put it. It was shot at Fort Zachary Taylor in Key West, Florida. I gave it the title because of a couple of guys that told me it reminded them of their wedding ring. :D :devil: I believe it was used to tie down a canon.

Well even this reminds me of another site where the title has very little/nothing to do with the subject, this is a wonderful shot! How big is the ring?

Nicely done!

Tony, the ring is about a foot across. They are set in the wall in front of where the canons would be on top of the fort. There are no canons outside, below is one of the canons inside. I never found out exactly how the rings were used. Might be to stop them from rolling too far back as they go off. :fart: :dance:

Since the topic section's title is, "Macro & Close-up", I believe this shot fits here just fine. :)
Neat and interesting shot Bob.
