Day 27: Block by H

In 1941 my grandfather was undertaking practical tests to become an aircraft mechanic in the Royal Australian Air Force. One of them was to measure, cut and file down a steel block that fit perfectly within another steel block. He passed. (He also gets an A+ in Hanging on To Things for 68 Years)

  1. this picture is really beautiful. there is something nostalgic about the color but not in the traditional sense. the texture of the cloth stands out nicely against the smoothness of the shadows in the background and seems to highlight the wrinkles of his hands. the story is amazing too though this picture speaks well without one.
