Stuff Portrait Friday

I am doing a lot of looking around the vast Internetland, finding photography challenges and techniques to play with. Like the photo of my favorite mug from a while back (and yes, I've done other challenges for that group, just not posting them all), this one captures a little piece of my life that I love. Not sure why this one is a favorite, other than it catches my eye every time I go into the basement. The overhead, 50-year-old light bulb gives it a nice glow and the conglomeration of stuff is just right, somehow. A mix of past and present and yet another example of the similarities between my husband and (late) favorite grandpa. Jason keeps that basement workshop and my memories of Grandpa alive. But it is cold down there, brrrrr!!!

Inspired by Random & Odd's Stuff Portrait Friday: Numbers theme
and Shutter Sisters: A Story of life

I love your numbers! I use to like to do all my writing in the garage, but looking back on all my end passages it says, "Can't write more, too cold in here."
