Hardware stores are some of my favorite places to walk around in. All that testosterone. Especially at the big box stores like Home Depot. You can bathe in it. Because of the van build project, I’m spending a lot of time there recently.
Sometimes I look at metal pieces not for their intended function, but for their shapes, designs, their out of context ability to make me wonder what the heck?.
I like taking photographs of the hardware out of context, as a still life. Just place a piece on the floor and capture the image.
There are many more of my images in my Alamy/Stockimo account that you can purchase.
