      I shot my photos today and started the culling process. One item that won't make the cut is a close up on some hand tools that I fabricated. I could have used "manufactured" tools that I purchased at trade shows or that I received with my Bachmann locomotives but where's the fun in that! Of course, they are not intended to be viewed through a magnifying glass, but be part of the larger scene. So here's an "in process" pic and the finished product.

      This one was taken with an iPhone 6

      This one was taken with a Cannon and sized down to 800X600. Hope it works.
