A handful of shots from Sunday's Iron Pour - A little less than a happy high

A handful of shots from Sunday's Iron Pour

Large mold Cupolette2 Single serving


This was one from the 4th annual Iron Guild pour at the Saugus Iron Works, which I understand is one of the Guild's educational pours. All the molds used were hand-carved by spectators out of set sand blocks. The next art pour will likely happen sometime around All Hallows, and barring any unforeseen difficulties, I'll probably go.

Related, using film still feels like blind thrashing in the dark. Based on the sheer number of discarded shots, I'm feeling like the Canon was a very forgiving machine. Hopefully, this exercise will help me get over some of my worst habits. Per usual, click any image to access the larger version(s) on my flickr site.

It's hard to go wrong with fire.

Those are some fine shots. Molten metal is super sweet.

I'm a fan of molten metal. Honestly, though, I think 2 or 3 of these pics are V's. :\

Thought of you all day yesterday -- while I wrapped delicious cheeses for 8 hrs!So far, my new job is really cool.

I still toy with the idea of finding part-time work with a cheesemonger from time to time, and I can only imagine that it made for a full day. I do hope your cheese buyer is more open minded than the one who covers the Whole for the Northeast. Granted, he knows his English cheese cold, but he has no respect for offerings from the continent, and near disdain for anything from the US.

It was awfully sweet of you to share. You made my night. ^_^

Seriously.

Think we can convince you to come with for the next one? IIRC, they're pouring in Providence...
