Those aren’t eyeballs

ball bearings



For the last 4 years, I’ve been photographing my Dad’s tools on my workbench. It’s fun, therapeutic “work” – a labor of love.

I made this image with the intention of putting it in the portfolio with the other images in the Workbench series.

But after inverting the image in Photoshop, then using the split toning tool in Lightroom, it became something

a lot stranger and more interesting than just a shot of some ball bearings in a box. But because the rest of the images in the series are in

color and are a little more literal, this image won’t be included in the portfolio.

Obviously,  M.C. Escher was an early influence.
