Default July Photo Contest

I'm thinking something along the lines of a vintage or old subject. A photograph taken by you (without photoshopping- meaning seriously altered).

Older homes, old machinery or tools. Something that you find appealing.

Taken within the last year ( opens it to all four seasons ), photographs only means no hand drawn pictures and yes it can be a person if they are wearing or in a vintage setting.

Have fun and the rules are pretty relaxed.

Here's something along the lines of what I was thinking ( not an entry since this one is few years old. ) Here's my former neighbor Sam in the engine shed



And attached in case photobucket throws the extortion tag again

Post as many as you like and unless specified, the first one will be used. ( if you don't pick one, the first will be the default choice )

Taken within the last 12 months...This is a horse I like to take pictures of on the carousel on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights NJ...the National Carousel Association said the Seaside Heights ride is one of only 212 classic wood carousels left in North America.
The 1910 Dentzel model, made by a Philadelphia family renowned for carousels, has 58 animals..36 of which move up and down and two benches.
The carousel also features a Wurlitzer band organ that operates with a pneumatic system, using a leather bellows and perforated music rolls that play its individual notes.
I know the old owner Dr. Floyd Moreland that just a few years ago sold it to the company that has now donated it to the town for an exchange of beach property to build the new section of Casino pier.

I could just take a selfie. That'd be an old tool.

I got water pump when I was 17 up in Memphis N.Y. at a friends house. We would go to auctions and get stuff.
Drill was my dads and I can remember it since....I can remember ! I think it might have been my grandfathers.....I never knew him.
Top of handle unscrews (wood threads) to keep drill bits inside handle

It's in the cabinet.....nothing special about it.

I thought the 1921 drip design inside of the lid is what was cool about the pot.

Check out the wear areas...I imagine the wire handle has been replaced (not by me though):

This will be my official entry. It's my Olds Gasoline Engine Works made sometime between 1899 and 1905. I was cleaning the decades of grime off the original paint with kerosene and the pain really came up nice.




and also added as an attachment since PB is an extortionist
